Police in Sandy Springs are searching for two women they believe robbed a beauty store at gunpoint and stole $263 worth of hair extensions.
The incident occurred at Sally Beauty Supply at 4920 Roswell Road on July 11 before police responded to the scene shortly before 8 p.m.
According to a police report, two store employees told police that the suspects — described as two females in their mid-20s — entered the store. One of them, who witnesses say was “heavy set,” was asking about hair dye when another customer yelled out and said the other suspect was stealing hair extensions.
The second suspect, who was stealing the extensions, is described as “skinny” with gold hair. The employees told police that the suspect struck the customer who yelled out and ran out of the store, the police report states.
As the employees tried to call police, the suspect who was asking about hair dye escaped the store. When employees tried to stop her from leaving, the suspect pulled out a gun, according to the police report.
Witnesses told police that both suspects and a third woman got into a Honda Civic with a man and a child and drove away onto Lake Island Drive.
The police report states that as the responding officer was arriving to the scene he saw a Honda Civic that matched the description of the one from the Sally Beauty Supply traveling southbound on Roswell Road. According to the report, when the driver of the Civic noticed the officer she began driving “evasively” and in a “reckless” manner. The officer followed the car onto westbound I-285, but stopped his pursuit when he noticed a young child in the vehicle.
Police do have the tag number of that car.
Police say the business does not have interior security cameras, and no cash was taken from the business.
The two employees told police that they could identify the suspects.
