Man loses 15 underwears from ‘undies thief’

A man in Goa, Camarines Sur has lost 15 of his underwears in a span of two weeks to an unknown ‘underwear thief’.

To some, it may just be underwear. But for Rico Laurenciano, this isn’t a funny one if someone is playing a joke on him.

In an interview with GMA’s Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Rico shared that buying a new set of underwear for him would mean crossing a river and walking for almost 30 minutes before reaching the highway to get a ride to the public market.

After he lost 15 underwears, he said he already spent more than P400 just for a set of new ones.

The underwears he hung on clothes drier and even the ones he stored on his storage were all gone even if he placed a lock on the doors and windows of his small hut near the river.

Rico believes it was some supernatural being who is playing tricks on him.

There was one instance when his mother Nena heard odd noises when she was staying at Rico’s house for a short stay.

Rico is now currently living in his home with his brother George because he is now scared of what the underwear thief might do to him.

No one in their village knew who took them. Not even the installed closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras were able to capture it when it was installed at his house.

If a person really took it, psychologist Jhon Cadiz Carandang says this person might be suffering from a fetishistic disorder in which he uses an inanimate object for his sexual arousal.

Rico has also reported this to the local police.

But in order to make sure he doesn’t lose any more of his underwears, he now brings them inside his bag whenever he goes out of his house.
