Hidden cam reveals mayor as underwear thief
The mayor of a small England town has been arrested after several women reported that their underwear was disappearing from their drawers.
Ian Stafford, 58, was charged with three counts of burglary in connection with incidents in properties in Preesall, Poulton and Stalmine. He resigned as mayor of Preesall, Lancashire after he was held on suspicion of theft in June.
One woman in particular was so nervous about the ongoing perverted burglaries, that she installed a hidden camera in her bedroom. When she and stunned police examined the tape, it revealed a semi-naked man going through her drawers, putting on her underwear and then performing a lurid sex act.
Investigations later exposed a collection of undies, allegedly matching those reported stolen, at the home of Stafford.
