A serial underwear thief has been uncovered in Hong Kong after his neighbour installed a spy camera following the mystery disappearance of several pairs of her drawers.
According to Metro Daily, the 44-year-old, surnamed Cheung, was pinching pants from washing lines around Yuet Wah Street in Kwun Tong, and had a stash of about HKD800-worth in his flat.
The knickers nicker was finally caught after his neighbour, surnamed Lee, asked her boyfriend to install a security camera outside her house which sent alerts to her mobile phone if any motion was detected.
She was at the police station reporting the theft of her underwear when the alarm went off again, showing Cheung coming back for a second helping.
Needless to say, it turned out to be a pretty pants day for him.
