Wash. Man Held in Theft of Panties, Bras Mar 27, 6:43 AM (ET) PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - A man was charged with theft and burglary after police said they found 93 pounds of women's panties, brassieres and other underwear at his home. Investigators believe Garth M. Flaherty, 24, took as many as 1,500 undergarments from apartment complex laundry rooms before he was caught, police Cmdr. Chris Tennant said. A man was seen taking underwear from two laundry rooms Saturday, a witness recorded his license number, and Flaherty was identified from photographs, Tennant said. Police found enough underwear in his bedroom to fill five garbage bags, Tennant said."He said he had a problem," Tennant said.- YEAH RIGHT!Flaherty has been jailed on 12 counts of second-degree burglary and one of first-degree theft. Police had previously received 12 reports of underwear thefts in the northeast part of town, where Washington State University is located."We were kind of concerned about how to match up bras and panties with victims," Tennant said. "Based on the unique descriptions from a couple of women, we can tie him to those thefts." - descriptions OF a couple of woman??The underwear will be held as evidence until the case is resolved, after which their disposition is uncertain, Tennant said. WATCH FOR MYLOT USER'S DOG THIEF (A DISCUSSION POSTED YESTERDAY!!)"Would you really want them back?" he asked. "I would say not." WOULD YOU???http://story.news.ask.com//article/20070327/D8O4FBB01.html photo: Ladies Underwear Panties

Well, I'm glad to see that the police have gotten to the "bottom" of the problem. It seems however that without the keen eye and "support" of a local citizen, the local constabulary would still be in "wonder" about the missing bras. Police really needed this break in the case as "thongs"...I mean "throngs" of women would picket the downtown station in various stages of "undress".....oops! I mean distress. Thank God this crime was the sole work of one seedy thief and no ties to the "under" world have been "uncovered."

Would I want them back? Well it depends on what he had been doing with them. If they had just been sitting in a bin bag I'd probably have them back if they were fairly expensive. I reckon he got a kick from the actual THEFT rather than the items themelves. After all its not so difficult these days for guys to go out and buy womens underwear. If you buy it off the internet then no one need know you're a man at all

Well, he must be a bit of a weirod, it sweems this is how he gets his "kicks". I remember many years ago in a small country town I was teaching in.. A man was going around doing "things" to womens underwwear. He even did it to a shop manequin. They need treatment & locking up.

Ewwww! I think if I found out that a starnge man had gotten a hold of my underwear I wouldn't want it back! It reminds me of something else actually. About 10 years ago, my aunt was in a relationship with some guy - offhand I don't remember his name - but anyway, they were together for quite a while, and then for whatever reason they split up, and he moved out of her home. After he'd left she realized one day whilst looking for one of her camisoles, that three of her best ones were missing. She looked high and low for them but deep down knew he'd taken them because she hadn't worn them since they'd been washed and she knew exactly where she kept her underwear. When she called down to our house, she told us about it, and my Dad gave us all the shudders when he said "You know, I can just see him wearing one of those and prancing around in high heels and makeup." LOL.

Okay, first question -- why is this even news? Who cares what someone else wears or collects? Just because a man likes womens underclothes doesn't mean he's a pervert. Women wear mens clothing all the time. Bit of a double standard here? And yes, women wear mens under clothes. What difference does it make? Yes he stole them, but he didn't break into their apartments or houses, he stold them from a laundry. If they had not left their laundry unattended, he couldn't have taken them. If he had stolen their jean or their towel, this would not have been investigated or reported.
