TRIBECA —  More than $3,000 worth of hair regrowth products, cold medications and razors were stolen from a TriBeCa Duane Reade in two separate thefts less than a day apart, according to police.

Authorities said that three men and a woman grabbed 14 boxes of Rogaine, along with an assortment of allergy and cold medications including Flonase, Allegra and Mucinex, from the shelves of the 305 Broadway store on Feb. 9 at about 6:45 p.m., then ran out without paying.

The next day, at about 10:20 a.m., a man, estimated to be about 50 years old, stuffed 39 razors and nine razor blade packets into his clothing, then fled the store, police said.

The thefts do not appear to be related, police said.

Police were still investigating the thefts as of Wednesday.
