Bald Man Sought in Rogaine Thefts
In what may or may not be a rejected George plot from "Seinfeld," this noticeably bald man is suspected of stealing a bunch of Rogaine from stores across multiple states.   (Mt. Healthy Police Department)

Bringing new meaning to the phrase "nothing left to lose," a bald man has apparently turned to a life of crime, allegedly stealing Rogaine from multiple stores in Ohio and Kentucky, the Smoking Gun reports. He's suspected of taking $847 worth of Rogaine and "brain health supplement" Prevagen from a Walgreens in Mt. Healthy, Ohio. Police say he also hit a CVS and two Walgreens in Florence, Kentucky. According to Fox19, the same man may also be responsible for stealing Rogaine from stores in two other cities. "It's quite a large area he's covering," a Florence Police Department detective says. "He does the same thing every time he goes in and targets the same items." All told, the man is suspected of stealing "thousands of dollars worth of hair growth formula and memory supplements."
