Just when you thought things couldn't get weirder...
I got this news item.
In Wichita, Kansas, it looks that even burglars like to wear clean clothes.
A man broke into a house Friday night to wash his clothes, but was discovered and ran away in his underwear, leaving his jeans and t-shirt behind. A spokesperson from the
Wichita police department confirmed the information.
The woman who lives in the house arrived to find her basement washroom in disarray, went upstairs to inform of this to her husband.
That's when a man, wearing only blue briefs appeared from a hiding place in the washroom, grabbed the startled woman's purse and ran away!
Sergeant Diane Varnell, of the WPD, said that the woman gave pursuit, reached the man and got her purse back. But the burglar escaped and he's still on the loose.
Varnell said that probably the man needed to wash his clothes.
He still doesn't beat the weirdest case of clothing theft in PR history; "El Chupa Panties", or "The Panty Sucker". A guy in Gurabo that loved to steal panties from clotheslines in order to make soup from them and you know...suck on them. For real! Scout's honor!!!
