Police in east Texas seek "panty burglar"

LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - Authorities say the theft of women's lingerie this week from a home in an East Texas county may be the latest in a two-year string of break-ins blamed on an intruder they've dubbed the "Panty Burglar."

Angelina County Sheriff's Lt. Pete Maskunas says the most recent burglary Tuesday has raised concerns because the thief also left with underwear belonging to a 5-year-old.

Maskunas tells The Lufkin Daily News (http://bit.ly/16I9nuQ ) the sexual nature of the items taken, particularly now with juvenile underwear taken, "ups the ante" for authorities who believe they're dealing with someone with a fetish and perversion.

Sheriff Greg Sanches says nearly a dozen homes have been broken into over two years where only lingerie was reported missing. Other than that, investigators say they have little to go on.
