MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Police in Miami Gardens, Florida, are investigating after reports of a burglary at a wig warehouse.

Prime Trading International Vice President Rakib Hossain told the station he got a call from his security company and checked the cameras set up at the warehouse from an app on his phone.

"I have been here for eight years and this has never happened before to me. It is a big loss for me," Hossain told WFOR. "Some products here are very exclusive and worth up to $800. Surveillance video shows a truck backing in to the front door and ramming it at least three times. They tried three times to smash it. They knew exactly what they were doing. They knew where the expensive products were and they knew everything about the stock room."

Hossain told WFOR that the wigs were worth $70,000 to $80,000.

One employee, Aaron Harris, told WSVN some wigs were going to a good cause.

"We were going to donate upwards between probably $10,000 to $20,000 worth of hair," Harris said.

Hossain said he will have more security at the warehouse going forward.
