A second-year student attending a Chiang Mai university was arrested late Thursday night for allegedly stealing multiple women’s underpants and bras from several boarding houses in downtown Chiang Mai.
Police said Polawat Pothanak, 21, was arrested at his house in Chiang Mai’s Mae On district.
Police retrieved many pairs of panties and bras found in a black bag.
The arrest was made after Thawalrat Panthaka, 35, the manager of a boarding house near Chiang Mai University, filed a complaint with the Mueang police station that a motorcyclist was seen stealing five bras and three panties belonging to tenants in two rooms on February 4.
Police checked security camera footage around the boarding house, saw the suspect’s face and motorcycle licence plate, and tracked him down for the arrest.
He is studying at a popular university in Chiang Mai.
