The panties were found in a nearby forest.
When: January 21st, 2021
Where: Ban Chan subdistrict, Udon Thani
Perpetrators: Unknown panty thief
Victim: Over 100 pairs of panties
What: On January 21st, 2021, police inspected a local migrant worker’s camp after reports from a luxury moobaan that over 100 pairs of women’s panties were stolen by an unknown panty thief in Udon Thani. Police found no evidence that the underwear was at the laborer camp.
But in an abandoned forest near to the luxury moobaan, there was a small path with “regular people” walking to the upscale moobaan. Police then found evidence of more than 100 pairs of women’s panties in the forest near the village.
The case is said to be a social danger and a threat to women. This kind of crime is not welcome in Udon Thani, according to authorities.

My take: This story read in a certain light could be the perfect example of the classism in Thai society.
Panties go missing in a luxury moobaan? Check the migrant labor camp! The report didn’t indicate why the camp was suspected of harboring the panties.
I’ll be very curious though if it was a migrant laborer who ends up being the panty thief. The anticipation of the reveal in the panty thief case has me excited anyway.
