Burglar in boxers steals purse, leaves jeans in washer
WICHITA, Kansas (AP) -- A Kansas burglar apparently likes to be clean -- but isn't so good about clean getaways.
Police in Wichita said it appears a man broke into a house Friday night to wash his clothes but fled in boxers, with his jeans still in the washer.
A woman reported that she returned home, found her basement laundry room in disarray and went upstairs to call her husband.
That's when a man wearing only blue boxer shorts came upstairs, grabbed her purse and ran out the door.
The woman chased him and recovered her purse, but the burglar is still on the loose, police Sgt. Diane Varnell said.
Varnell said it appears the man simply needed to wash his clothes.
