Ohio police hunt for bald man in string of Rogaine thefts

Police in a town outside Cincinnati are searching for a bald man they say was involved in the theft of $847 in Rogaine and memory aids from at least three stores, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

Authorities released surveillance images of the man appearing to hold up a shopping basket, the report said.

Mount Healthy police have issued an alert for "a serial thief" they say recently took $847 worth of Rogaine and Prevagen products from a Walgreens store in the city just north of Cincinnati. Police say he 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 tells WCPO-TV that police are "scratching our heads at this, no pun intended," over the Rogaine thefts.
