MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A nail salon burglary was caught on tape.

Vy Nguyen, who works at Glamour Nails in Bartlett, said the crook on the salon’s surveillance video was in and out quickly. The video shows a man throw a brick through the glass front door.

“Just snatched the TV off the wall,” Nguyen said. 

He ran through the door, disappeared from the video for a couple of seconds, then ran out with a flat screen TV.

A police officer patrolling at the time just after midnight Wednesday saw a gray Ford Taurus parked in front of the salon. The burglar took off when the
officer pulled in. 

"He pulled the car to the back and he ran,” Nguyen said. 

Nguyen said the man ran off into the woods. The flat screen TV was in the crook's car with the wall mount still on it. Police searched the woods but never found the culprit.

Nguyen said the crook was driving a car registered to a man who is behind bars. She said someone broke into the shop last month and stole a TV. Police searched the wooded area, but never found the suspect.
