Police said the clothing items were taken from an unlocked pickup truck. The man, who is seen on the video trying to scare a cat on the front porch of the home, also took cleaning supplies, change and other clothing items from the truck.

The security camera footage shows the man narrowly avoid capture when a Riverside County Sheriff's Office patrol car passes by the pickup truck while he's inside.

"We have had incidents where stuff has been stolen, but never like this, where some guy is completely naked, and at a point in the video you actually see him sniffing the bra," Vidal Coronel, daughter of the truck's owner, told KESQ-TV.

Coronel said the clothing items belong to her sister, who has been using the pickup truck to move. "We all have kids here, and for this guy to be walking around in a bra and a skirt stealing, and he could go into someone's house and do something worse," Coronel said.
