Odd but true story! The police are on the hunt for a guy who has stolen thousands of dollars worth of Rogaine from drugstores all over the Midwest!
The Huffington Post reports that the suspect, who, from security footage, is indeed bald, recently stole $847 worth of the product along with memory aid supplement Prevagen from a Walgreens in Mount Healthy, Ohio. In addition to this theft, this man has been hitting stores in Florence, Kentucky, as well as suburbs of Cincinnati and Cleveland, according to police. "We're scratching our heads on this -- no pun intended, I guess," Mount Healthy Police Department Detective Chris Jones told ABC 9.The department on issued a call for help from the public as well as surveillance footage of the thief on Facebook on Wednesday (Feb. 24).

Police in Florence also reached out to their citizens the next day. "This is the same male that is on video committing similar acts at drug store locations across the tristate and is believed to be responsible for several thousand dollars worth of stolen merchandise," the police wrote online.
Though the suspect is bald, cops don’t believe that he’s taking all of this Rogaine for himself. "Our feeling is that he's trying to resell this on Craigslist, eBay or maybe at some type of flea market," Detective Jones told Mount Healthy news station WKRC. Good thing, because it didn’t look to be working out all that well for him!
