DETROIT (WJBK) - A Detroit beauty supply store is broken into over and over again. Police have the suspect on surveillance video but they need your help to find him.

The thief is pretty bold! He breaks in through the front door.

Click on the video player to watch Alexis Wiley's report.

The owner tells Fox 2 she's done everything she can think of to stop this guy. She's installed layers of security, gates, security systems but nothing seems to stop him from breaking in. The suspect is stealing hair.

Surveillance video from the morning of Oct. 10 shows him pacing in front of the door. He shatters the glass then somehow breaks the gate, bends the metal and climbs into the store. He reappears moments later, this time with expensive packs of hair.

You'd think someone wouldn't try a brazen burglary like this more than once but this guy's a little different. He's broken in five times in just ten days. One of the break ins happened at 8 a.m., just before the store opened. So far he's gotten away every time.

The suspect's hair heists are costing the store thousands of dollars. Police and the owner hope someone will recognize him from the video and turn him in.
