Clark County Sheriff Gene Kelly said deputies saw Aaron Spradlin, 20, sitting in his truck Tuesday night and observed the truck matched the description of a vehicle seen at three burglaries during the past week, the Dayton (Ohio) News reported Thursday.
Kelly said deputies searched the truck.
"That's when we discovered the ladies' undergarments," he said. The sheriff said all of the burglaries took place in the daytime and investigators believe he was familiar with the victims.
"He did admit to all three burglaries," Kelly said.
Spradlin did not give investigators a reason for the thefts. He was charged with burglary and trespassing. Judge Eugene Nevius ordered Spradlin held in lieu of $30,000 bond.
