A 25 year old man in Chiang Mai was arrested for allegedly stealing women’s underwear. Apparently, the man, identified as Fang, has been stealing the women’s bras and panties for the past 2 years, police say.

Police opened an investigation after a 29 year old woman staying at a Chiang Mai hotel reported that her suitcase was stolen. Officers reviewed surveillance camera footage and tracked down Fang.  Police searched Fang’s apartment and say they found the missing suitcase along with a “pile of hundreds” of women’s underwear.

Fang allegedly confessed to stealing the bras and panties. Fang allegedly told police that he had been stealing for 2 years, usually taking the undergarments from self-service laundromats. Fang apparently just liked to admire the women’s underwear, police say.

There have been a few “knicker-napper” cases this year. In a case in April, also in Chiang Mai, a food delivery driver was arrested for allegedly stealing bras and panties while out on deliveries, snatching the clothes off the drying racks. In surveillance camera footage, a man in a delivery uniform is seen taking women’s garments from a drying rack, sniffing them and putting them under his jacket before taking off.

Back in January, police arrested a man for stealing 1,400 pieces of women’s underwear in Bangkok’s Don Muang district. He allegedly told police “The smell of women’s underwear makes me happy.”

In October, police found 70 pairs of knickers along with methamphetamine pills at a man’s house in Ratchaburi, a province west of Bangkok bordering Myanmar. Police arrested the man for theft and drug possession. By the amount of underwear found at the home, police suspect the man made about 20 robberies.
