PHUKET: A motorbike taxi driver caught red-handed with a bag full of used bras and panties was later found in possession of thousands of women’s undergarments at his home.
After arresting 46-year-old Phanu Phloisuwan on September 26, Samut Prakarn City police found a trove of more than 5,000 undergarments, mostly stolen from washing lines over a two-year period.
Most of the items were found hanging from walls inside Mr Phanu’s apartment, while others were scattered in piles on the floor. Still more were stuffed into plastic bottles.
After his arrest, Mr Phanu told police that the sight of women’s underwear sexually aroused him, so he stole them and used them for “sexual gratification”.
