MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach Police responded to Sally Beauty Supply at 1315 North Kings Highway where a man took off with hair extensions after failing to open the cash register.

According to the police report, the victim stated that the suspect entered the store on Saturday and asked for hair extensions. The victim got the hair extensions off a secured display and rang them up on the cash register.
