  1. He’s an amateur. A good underwear thief gets freshly worn underwear that hasn’t been washed yet.

    • Totally concur with Marcux69! Some Japanese men and boys are totally obsessed with sexually eroticizing women’s underwear. It’s neat how Japanese law enforcement authorities segregate and displays the women’s panties and bras as evidence for the media. I’m sure some of the Japanese investigators love this part of their job.
