PHUKET – An off-duty security guard was caught red-handed stealing women’s panties off a clothesline in Phuket Town last night.
Residents of Phol Place apartments, behind Surakul Stadium (map here), heard someone
walking around the dimly-lit area near their building at about 9:30pm.
“They saw a man lurking near the building, and they kept an eye on him. When they spotted him stealing undergarments off the clothesline, they seized him,” explained Sub Lt Surasak Pipitkul of the Phuket City Police.
Officers were called to the scene, where they found Nussaree Hayeebilung, 38, with 10 pairs of women’s panties and two bras hidden in his jacket.
“I work as a security guard. I was on my way home when I parked my motorbike nearby and went to steal the underwear,” Mr Nussaree told police.
Asked what he did with the undergarments, Mr Nussaree explained, “When I’m finished sniffing them, I toss them away some place where nobody knows me.”
“I have done it many times,” he confessed.
During his debriefing with police, Mr Nussaree revealed that he had also stolen underwear from apartments near Vachira Phuket Hospital.
“We have charged Mr Nussaree with committing theft at night,” Lt Surasak confirmed to the Phuket Gazette.
