April 30, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Police are looking for a wig-snatching duo that stole thousands of dollars worth of cosmetic wigs from a Ridgewood studio space last week.

The two women broke into One Eyed Studios, located at 1639 Centre St., last Wednesday, April 22 around 3:40 p.m., by forcing open the front door, police said.

The women then grabbed several cosmetic hair wigs worth $13,000 and fled.

They were last seen wearing all dark clothing with protective masks covering their faces. They’re believed to be 20 to 30 years old, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
