No mercy for children with cancer – that’s what a crook has demonstrated.
A whole collection of wigs set aside for BC Children’s hospital has been stolen.
Cops said the wigs stolen from a West Broadway store had been set aside for children with cancer.
“Vancouver Police are appealing to the public for information about a recent break-in to a Vancouver wig store, where the suspect stole an entire collection of wigs set aside for cancer patients at BC Children’s Hospital.”
“On September 7, just after 3:30 a.m., Vancouver Police were alerted to an intruder alarm at Eva and Company Wigs at 950 West Broadway. Officers discovered that someone had broken into the store and taken off with at least 150 wigs.”
The wigs are made from real human hair and are valued at approximately $2,500 each.
The suspect has been described as dark-skinned, with noticeably curly long, black hair.
He was last seen walking away from the wig store carrying a large black garbage bag and wearing a denim or blue jacket.
“It’s possible that someone is in possession of one or more of these wigs, and that they don’t know they’re stolen or that they were meant for sick children,” said Sgt. Jason Robillard of VPD.
“We need people to do the right thing and come forward with information.”
The thief has a few options. He could sell them off cheaply. He could ship them out of the country. If you become suspicious let the cops know.
