Sometimes, a criminal does something so stupid you can’t help but laugh at their actions. Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun reported that a 37-year-old construction worker was arrested for starting a laundry fire while stealing three pairs of women’s underwear.
According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, the man was drunk when he decided to light a hanging towel on fire. Some drying underwear caught his attention while lighting the fire, so he decided to steal them for fun.

The man allegedly told the police, “While starting the fire purely for mischief purposes, I saw the hanging underwear and stole them.”
10 minutes earlier, about 200 meters away from the pantie snatching scene, a sunshade was set on fire at different apartment location. The police are investigating if it was committed by the same man.
