Chump of the Week: Jamie Bradshaw, Lake County Serial Panty Thief

Man, the things you find when you Google image search panty thief.
  • Man, the things you find when you Google image search 'panty thief.'

Sometimes it’s just too hard to keep the inner panty thief at bay, even after 17 years of cold sobriety. That, or Jamie V. Bradshaw just was able to indulge his inner creep on the sly for almost 20 years without getting caught. Which, ladies of Lake County, might explain a lot those inexplicably missing undies . . . sorry to lodge that thought in your head, just doing our public service . . .

On Wednesday, police say the Painesville resident broke into an apartment in Willowick and stole a woman’s bra. The News-Herald reports the bare details, but doesn’t offer up whether Bradshaw knew the victim, or how he was caught. But caught he was, and he’s now facing up to 10 years for the offense.

But this is nothing new for Bradshaw, the whole underwear snatching thing. In 1995, he was collared for going into the laundry room of a Willoughby apartment complex and walking out with a bundle of bras and panties.

That laundry binge landed him jail time on a burglary charge.
