Gloucestershire Police have appealed to Cotswold residents to come forward and finger their bras and knickers after they arrested a man on suspicion of burglary and theft and uncovered a cache of mystery smalls.

The unidentified man was arrested on June 27 and is on bail pending further enquiries. However, during their investigation, Cirencester CID uncovered "some 15-20 unidentified pairs of knickers and a handful of bras".

They are appealing for anyone in the Bussage area "who believes their underwear could have been taken" to get in touch, so that they can establish whether the foundation garments are stolen or not.

DC Bee Morris, of Cirencester CID, explained: "The main aim of the appeal is to try to find the owners and return these items. People may not have given it much thought, believing the dog has got hold of them or they have been lost."

Police have said the panty ID parade would help their investigation, and ensure the items are referred to their rightful owners.

Presumably the police are also considering pulling in a lingerie expert, who can help them clear up the mystery of whether they have 15 or 20 pairs of knickers. ®
