MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Police are on the lookout for a bald man they say has been stealing hair growth and memory aid products from stores.
Officers in suburban Cincinnati have issued an alert for “a serial thief” they say recently took $847 worth of Rogaine and Prevagen products from a local Walgreens store. Police say the criminal is linked to similar thefts from retailers in nearby suburbs.
Police say the man is believed to drive a white Jeep.
They’re not sure if he’s using any of the products himself but suspect he tries to sell them online or at flea markets.
Mount Healthy Detective Chris Jones told a local television station that police are “scratching our heads at this, no pun intended,” over the Rogaine thefts.
Some North Texans are taking a different, and legal, approach to to try and deal with hair growth issues — they’re getting a treatment that uses plasma from their own blood that is then injected straight into the scalp.
