After a Chinese national stole over 50 pairs of underwear from women in Chon Buri last month, a new underwear thief in the province has been caught on camera! Footage from a surveillance camera caught a man stealing women’s underwear and clothes from a laundromat in Sri Racha district on Tuesday.

The owner of the laundromat told The Pattaya News that she noticed a customer’s clothes were missing, so she checked her surveillance camera. The camera showed a man wearing a white long-sleeved shirt and long black trousers rummaging through laundry baskets.

The owner, a 72 year old woman, said that her female customers are now “terrified”, and she she reportedly begged police to arrest the suspect as soon as possible. The laundromat is located in the city of Laem Chabang.

In last month’s underwear theft incident, a Chinese national admitted to stealing women’s underwear across Chon Buri. He was caught red-handed on CCTV while allegedly stealing underwear from a woman’s house. When he was caught on CCTV, the owner of the house he stole from said it was the third time she had heard of underwear stolen in that area of the Sanesuk district.

After the police identified the man, 50 year old Lin Huagua, they found over 50 pairs of underwear in his room. Lin worked as a mechanical parts manufacturer for a Chinese-owned company in the Mueang Chon Buri district. He lived on the company’s property along with other foreign workers.
