from Yahoo UK

Ian Stafford, 58, who has reportedly resigned as Mayor of Preesall in Lancashire, was charged on Monday by Lancashire Police with three counts of burglary in connection with the missing garments.

Female residents called in police after their underwear kept disappearing and one woman even installed a hidden camera in her bedroom.

The part-time handyman and gardener will appear at Wyre Magistrates’ Court next month.

A Lancashire police spokesman said: “Ian Stafford has been charged with three counts of burglary in a dwelling in connection with incidents at addresses in Preesall, Poulton-le-Fylde and Stalmine between January 1 and June 26 2009.”
