Caught on Cam: Brazen Theft at Poway Salon

The owner of Dolce Vida Hair Salon in Poway nicknamed the thief the "Slob Rob" after an early morning break-in was reported Thursday

A theft was caught on surveillance camera inside a Poway hair salon and the owner believes "karma" will catch up to the thief.

Nikki Draper showed us the damage left behind by the suspect she's nicknamed the "Slob Rob."

Draper owns Dulce Vida Hair Salon on Poway Road where someone broke in early Thursday.

Marks on the door show where it looks like the suspect tried to pry the glass out of the door at approximately 4 a.m.

Surveillance video shows the crook crash through the window.

NBC 7’s Omari Fleming reports on the theft that occurred in Poway and was captured on store surveillance video.

Dressed in a hoodie with a flashlight in hand he heads straight to the front desk.

When Draper saw a similar break-in at Couture Hair Bar & Spa in Carmel Mountain Ranch in May, she added security cameras to her salon.

Deputies haven't confirmed if the two salon crimes are connected.

Draper is hoping the video will help San Diego County Sheriff's Deputies catch the person responsible.

"I'm a firm believer in you reap what you sow," Draper said. "Karma is going to get you."
