Well-groomed man is sought in Rogaine, pill thefts
Authorities in Colorado are looking for a well-groomed man suspected of stealing more than $2,600 worth of teeth-whitening strips, weight-loss pills, probiotics, condoms, Rogaine and other hair-growth products from several Walgreens stores.
Jefferson County sheriff’s officials said the thefts happened April 11. The same man also is suspected of stealing from Walgreens stores in Arvada and Golden a day earlier.
Investigators say the man, wearing a sweater, tie, slacks and a neatly groomed mustache and beard, apparently used a coat that he was carrying to conceal the stolen goods. Investigators say it appears he would buy a DVD before leaving the store as a possible cover for the door alarm activating.
Therapy dogs help Montana students with test stress
At Montana State University, final exams stress is going to the dogs.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported Intermountain Therapy Animals brought dogs to campus last week and this week to help students take a break from the stress of studying for and taking semester exams.
Jacqueline Frank is the Renne Library commons assistant who started the “Paws to de-Stress” program this semester. She says research shows that animals can help reduce stress and lower blood pressure.
Frank said during a two-hour period Thursday, 261 people stopped by to meet Ellie, a 6-year-old golden retriever and Sophie, a 4-year-old Maltese. Sophomore Rebecca Johnson from Ferndale, Wash., said: “This is the best idea ever.”
