The thief entered the store and was seen on a surveillance video near the product displays at the Color Trendz salon on Pine Ridge Road near U.S. 41, helping herself to shampoo, hairspray, and other hair care products. She quickly stuffed the products into her oversized bag while looking around for shop personnel.

She then moves to the front counter and register area and steals approximately $8,000 in cash and credit cards under the register in a bank bag. The cash also included rent money and Christmas bonuses for the salon staff.

Unfortunately, the staff was all in the back cleaning up for the day and did not see the thief in action. Otherwise, the outcome would have been different.

“She came in and just started to clear the shelves, took everything and anything she could see,” said Amber Williams, the store manager. “She didn’t look back. She was just taking.” It makes me sick to my stomach, honestly,” “That was our rent money. It was everyone’s, It was what we worked for,” I would probably just want to punch her in the face and tell her how sick of a human being she is and how she should be locked up.”

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office investigating the theft and are asking the public for help. If you recognize the thief or know her whereabouts, please contact the Collier County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number with the information.

“She was very brazen, it’s shocking, I mean, there are good people in the world, and then there are bad people in the world. She just so happens to be one of the people we want off the street,” said Williams.
