The security guards at a hospital in Thailand busted a man stealing women's panties which were hung out to dry in the sun.
According to TNews, he said they were a gift for his girlfriend whose panties already have holes "in the butt area."
In his possession, police found four pairs of nylon panties in different colours, which belonged to the relative of a patient at Udon Thani Hospital, Thailand, TNews reported.
The 38-year-old man told police that he had been laid off from his job at a gas station two months earlier and had been asking for food at the hospital.
On Tuesday, however, he spotted the panties, which reminded him of his Laotian girlfriend.
Because his girlfriend's panties have holes in them and he loves her very much, the suspect took a risk and stole the panties so his girlfriend would have beautiful underwear.
"I stole them for my girlfriend. Her panties have holes in the butt area," he told the police.
He insisted that he had no intention to masturbate to the panties, and that this was the first time he had committed such a crime.
The incident, which happened in rural Udon Thani province in Thailand, saw 38-year-old Narin Prasertkaew being charged for theft.
