Police in Nevada are looking for a very strong burglar. Over the weekend, someone broke into the Sports Bowl Lanes and stole the entire safe, which weighs a couple hundred pounds.

Police believe the crook broke in through a back door and got away with about $4,000.

But the owners say the burglar also took something far more important than money…

"One thing that meant a lot to me was my granddaughter's first haircut was in there." says owner Mindy Tillotson, "And I was going to actually make a little doll for her with that actual hair. And it's one of those things that I've been putting off and putting off, but now I probably won't be able to do that just because someone took the safe."

Police doubt the thief will be able to get into the safe. The owners of the bowling alley say the thief can keep the money…they just want the lock of hair back.
