Panty thief caught red-handed

BANGKOK: A 21-year-old Thai computer engineer faces up to five years in prison for poaching used women's underwear and selling them through his Internet website, police said yesterday. 

On Monday, Sathaporn Singtham was caught stealing seven pairs of panties drying on a clothesline outside a home in Nakhon Ratchasima, 260km northeast of here. 

Police also found nearly 20 more pairs of well-worn underwear at Sathaporn's residence which he confessed he had prepared to mail to his clients, who were mainly in Bangkok, Lt-Col Wongsak Wongsami said. 

“We have had panty thieves before but they only committed the crimes for themselves. This is the first time such a case has occurred here,” he said.
