Bald man accused of trying to steal hair-loss product

Sunday, September 16, 2007

OSSINING, N.Y. -- A bald man went into a pharmacy and stole five bottles of a hair loss treatment but was caught while running away, police said.

Mark Hoousendove, 42, was arrested on misdemeanor charges of petty larceny and resisting arrest, Detective Lt. William Sullivan said. The product was worth about $50.

Hoousendove, of Freeport, had just dropped off friends who were visiting an inmate at Sing Sing prison Sunday when he went into the pharmacy, police said. An officer nearby chased him and grabbed him, they said.

Hoousendove was jailed in lieu of $3,000 bail and was due in court Thursday.

There was no telephone listing for Hoousendove at the home address provided by police, and a call to the only listing for a Hoousendove in Freeport rang unanswered.
