EXETER, England, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- A 35-year-old postal worker in the British town of Weymouth was arrested allegedly wearing a woman's thong taken from a mail delivery, police allege.

Police say they began tracking Matthew Furness after receiving complaints of missing packages while the postal worker was on duty, The Sun said Friday.

All of the missing packages contained female-oriented products and led police to place a package containing female underwear in his delivery van. Police allege the package disappeared within a matter of hours and Furness was questioned by investigators.

The Sun said after the married postal worker denied the theft allegations, police conducted a strip search and allegedly found Furness wearing the missing red thong.

Furness later pleaded guilty to two counts of theft and received a two-year conditional discharge and a fine, the newspaper said.
