A 32-year-old man who used a custom made fishing rod to steal nearly 300 bras and over 180 worn panties has been nabbed by Chinese police.
The 32-year-old from Liyang was caught red handed in a routine check on his van and confessed to the spree over a three year period.
He told the police that he had become unable to control himself after stealing just a handful of lingerie at first. Police said they were launching a criminal case, but were seeking psychological help for the man. In late 2014, a Guangxi man was arrested for stealing more than 2,000 sets of women’s underwear from his neighbours over the course of a year.
