As the police arrived, they caught the thief and arrested him in time. The woman calling the police reported she heard some footsteps outside. As she looked out, she found a stranger stealing women’s underwear which was supposed to be air- dried. She told the police that she kept quiet, hid in a room and called the police secretly. She continued, after the man stealing in one house, he did not leave immediately. Instead, he was calm and stole the underwear in the second and third house.

The police from the Xugou police station suspected that it was not the first time the thief stole women’s underwear, so they tracked him down, and he admitted that there were some in his home.
The police then went to his house for a search, they could not find any. After further investigation, the man finally admitted he hid the underwear in the garage.

In order to hide his foible from his family, he put the stolen objects in the garage and covered them with sailcloth. A few days ago, the man was sent to jail for 15 days as a result of his theft.
