Police say a “very valuable” amount of hair was taken early Sunday from a shop called Beauty One by burglars, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The culprits pried open a huge steel door that had been secured with two deadbolt locks to get a hold of the hair, authorities say.
No dollar amount for the hair was immediately known, and no explanation was given for why the thieves would swipe it.
“I’ve been to a lot of robberies but never with hair,” a police sergeant said.
