Pullman’s panty thief has been busted .
The five bags of undergarments discovered by police at Garth Flaherty’s Pullman, Wash., home weighed approximately 93 pounds and contained an estimated 1,500 pairs of women’s undergarments—bras and panties of all shapes, colors and sizes.
It was enough for Pullman police to arrest Flaherty, 24, and declare that they had finally found their suspect after a months-long panty-thief mystery that targeted the Washington State University college town.
Police first heard reports of stolen panties in and around the Washington State campus in the latter part of 2006, Tenant said. The reports came from five different apartment buildings with common laundry rooms that primarily house college students….
“So far in 2007, we had already had about a dozen actual reports,” Tenant said. “I guess you could say we live in a target-rich environment if this is your fetish.”
