When a couple of thieves chose to rob the 1st Choice Virgin Hair Store on Azalea Road in Mobile, AL, they weren’t counting on the store’s owner grabbing her gun and leaping across the counter to stop the weave thieves.

 

The owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said she noticed the two women, who came into her store together Thursday afternoon, were acting suspicious.

 

“Once I showed them the hair I put the hair behind me and the other girl I guess she wanted to distract me, so she asked me to come down to the other side of the store. While I was down there the other girl jumped over the counter to snatch the bundles of hair and I see her so I immediately ran, grabbed my gun, jumped over the counter, and the one who grabbed the hair she got away but her accomplice I stopped in progress. And I told her if she didn’t get down I would shoot her,” said the owner.

 

Surveillance video taken from the store shows the owner leaping to action.

The owner held the accomplice, identified as Ariel Goodwin, 20, at gunpoint until police arrived and took her into custody.

 

“We’ve had it happen before and I had to do the same thing, hold people at gunpoint until police come,” said the owner.

 

Like everyone who carries a gun for protection, the owner of the shop said glad she’s never had to pull the trigger, but said she will not tolerate thieves stealing from her livelihood.

 

“I’m here to protect myself and my customers, the ones here for the right purpose. But at the same time I work too hard to have people come and steal from me when all they have to do is go to work,” said the owner.
