According to reports out of Lufkin, Texas, an underwear thief has been terrorizing the town since 2009. He just hit house number 17 on Tuesday.

What's really disturbing about this story is that he doesn't just steal your clean undies, he takes everything, clean or dirty.

The "Lingerie Looter," as police have taken to calling him, doesn't leave much behind in terms of evidence and the cops are no closer to catching this mad man than they were five years ago.

Usually the man only takes the underwear, unless he spots some cash just lying around, then he'll be taking that to.

Personally, I think everyone is just ignoring what is really going on here. It's SO obvious that this is the work of the notorious Underpants Gnomes!

For those fans of South Park, you know what I'm talking about.
