WEST SHORE, B.C. - No one has complained yet, but Mounties in West Shore, B.C., just west of Victoria, believe they may be on the trail of an underwear thief.

Investigators say the man, in his late 40s, was found unconscious in a bathroom in the Metchosin area on July 29 and his backpack was stuffed with women's and girl's underwear.

They haven't said why the man was unconscious, but they have revealed he has a record of sexual assaults.

Police are now trying to determine if the underwear could have been taken from clotheslines or during break-ins around Metro Victoria.

Sgt. Max Fossum says if anyone comes forward to identify the underwear, charges could be laid against the man.

But Fossum says, in the meantime, all police can do is seize the clothing and release their suspect. (CFAX)
