'Underwear Bandit' Arrested

Does this look like the face of an 18-year-old who had 66 pairs of stolen underwear in a duffel bag?

Earlier this week, Larry Moore's father noticed that he had jewelry in his bedroom. Strange for an 18-year-old boy, so he asked his son who then confessed to having stolen the bling. Cops were called and as they searched Moore's father and mother's houses, the boy told officers that he had broken into two homes in the past month.

Both victims had reported the burglaries and said their underwear drawers had been rummaged through and their delicates stolen, according to the Morning Journal, so when they found a duffel bag with 66 pairs of undies, they weren't entirely surprised.

But it seems that Moore's reasoning for targeting the women's underwear was not puerile, but practical. His sister had told him that she kept her jewelry in her underwear drawer, so Moore figured that by swiping as many pairs as he could get his hands on, he would probably find some gold and diamonds buried in the cotton and lace.

Of course, no matter his motivation, he will forever be known as the kid who was found with 66 pairs of stolen underwear, and no one wants that.
