The VPD have charged 52-year old Martin Weigelt in relation to a break-and-enter at a West Broadway wig store where 150 wigs that were slated for BC Children’s Hospital were stolen.
According to a media release, in the early morning hours of September 7, VPD say Weigelt allegedly broke into Eva and Company Wigs on West Broadway street and stole wigs made from human hair that were set to be given to cancer patients.
Officials say they have recovered 66 of the stolen wigs and the investigation is still ongoing.
VPD consider Weigelt one of the city’s most prolific property offenders, with more than 100 criminal convictions dating back to 1987.
