Luis Javier Fernandez-Garcia has given new meaning to the term "panty raid." The 30-year-old man was caught burglarizing a young woman's apartment in Pasadena in the wee hours of Saturday morning when she arrived home with a male companion, LA Now reports. Fernandez-Garcia fled on foot; when he was caught and handed over to Pasadena Police, they discovered he was wearing the young woman's lingerie, which he had stolen from her bedroom. According to the authorities, the skivvies were the only items stolen from the apartment on Garfield Avenue. "This is not your normal type of burglary," remarked an officer.
