Ontario man charged in underwear thefts; police believe there are more victims

RENFREW — Provincial police say they want to hear from anyone in the Renfrew area who has been a victim of underwear theft.

Investigators say they’ve seized a number of bras and panties after a search of an accused’s home in Renfrew.

They say a 61-year-old man was initially charged in September and released after a person brought evidence to police allegedly showing a man breaking into their home and stealing underwear.

Police say a search warrant was obtained after a second person came forward with evidence allegedly showing a man taking underwear from their home during a break-in.

A quantity of bras and panties was seized and investigators say they believe this has been happening for a number of years.

An Admaston Bromley Township man — who recently lived in Renfrew — is charged with two counts of break and enter and commit an indictable offence and six counts of possession of property obtained by crime.
