EAST FLATBUSH - A burglar broke into a hair supply store in East Flatbush Sunday, and security cameras recorded most of the incident.

A man in a baseball cap is shown in the video taking armfuls of hair extensions from the Church Avenue shop, called Daddy's Hair Store, during the Father's Day break-in.

Police say the man attempted to enter from the back of the store but couldn't. He then broke in through a second-story window and is shown on security video breaking into the shop through a sheetrock wall.

Police say they have dusted the store for fingerprints. Video clearly shows the suspect without a mask or gloves.

Store owner Davic Solomon says the suspect has stolen from the store at least twice before. Daddy's has been burglarized four times in only a year since it opened, he says.
