Serial killer, serial rapist and now serial panty thief

Thai police said Friday they had discovered thousands of items of stolen women's underwear at the home of a robbery suspect, the second time the man has been found hoarding undergarments this year.

Danai Raiwech, 48, was arrested at his home in a Bangkok suburb on Thursday after police searched his property in connection with a $325,000 heist at a jewellers.

His wife was found wearing items of stolen jewellery, but during the search officers also uncovered bags full of underwear.

"He confessed that he obsesses over underwear and uses it for masturbation," Police Colonel Napanwut Liamsanguan told AFP.

"He collected underwear for many years, stealing them from houses or apartments three or five each time.

I stopped counting at 2,000 pieces of underwear but there must be more than 5,000 of them I'm sure," he said.
