Denver7 has exclusive surveillance video of a man breaking into a wig store on Thursday morning.

It was one of six smash-and-grab burglaries on a one mile stretch of Hampden Avenue.

In the video, a man can be seen walking around the shopping center talking to a lookout in a nearby vehicle.

The man attacks the door of Kim's Wig Botik with a rock, then kicks the door several times.

Within seconds, the man was able to get inside.

Surveillance video from inside the shop shows the man run in, run to the cash register, grab something and run out.

Kim's Wig Botik is on Hampden at Tamarac. It was one of three businesses hit in the shopping center Thursday morning.

Three other businesses were hit about a mile away at Hampden and I-25.

Three more businesses were hit in the same area on Monday.

Police in Denver are investigating more than a dozen smash-and-grab burglaries over the last month.
