LUFKIN, Texas (CBS Houston) – Police are searching for a burglar who broke into a home and stole women’s underwear.

The Lufkin News reported the Angelina County Sheriff Office warning the public about a Tuesday burglary stating that it is very similar to other unsolved burglaries in the county raising the bar for concern.

“We take burglaries very serious, especially when it seems to have a sexual-related event such as this,” Angelina County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Pete Maskunas told The Lufkin News. “Because of the sexual nature of the items stolen, it really ups the ante for us. We are dealing with someone who has a fetish and perversion, and with the juvenile underwear taken, we are really quite concerned.”

Over the past two years, nearly a dozen homes have been broken into where only ladies lingerie has been stolen.  In Tuesday’s incident, authorities said a 5-year-old child’s underwear was also taken with women’s underwear.

Police are not positive if the recent burglary is tied to the others, but are asking the public to be on the look out.

“This happened in broad daylight on a main road,” Maskunas explained to the newspaper. “The person we are looking for will probably appear to belong. We want the community to be aware of anything going on during the daytime when neighbors might be at work. Keep an eye open for anything suspicious in nature.”
