Lakewood, NJ – A pair of women recorded on surveillance video stealing wigs during the weekend at Lakewood Beauty Supply were charged Tuesday because people recognized them on social media, police said.
Jakiera Randolph, 18, of Jackson and Kadija Diawara, 19, of Toms River were charged with shoplifting, according to Detective Sgt. Greg Staffordsmith. Both were released after being charged, he said.
“Yesterday we released photos of two females believed to be involved in a shoplifting where approximately $250 in wigs were taken. Within hours we had several calls from concerned citizens identifying each of them,” Staffordsmith said.
Staffordsmih said six different wigs were taken.
“All were black in color but I’m not sure in the particular style,” Staffordsmith said.
The wigs were not recovered, he said.
