This is crazy! Women in Venezuela and Colombia are guarding their tresses. Thieves are targeting women who let down their hair-- literally robbing them of the hair off their heads!

Authorities say it's happening downtown, at beaches and the mall. The suspects pull out scissors and cut it, then sell it at hair salons!

"You have to see it to believe it," One woman said, "We're not going to be able to have long hair anymore. As a woman, this is something traumatic."

It's easy money for thieves, who can sell natural hair for more than $500!
