Some Guy Hit Up a Town Called Bra to Steal All the Bras

Makes sense

A man who probably has a pretty low level of emotional maturity but a pretty great sense of humor went to the Italian town of Bra to steal a bunch of bras. Yup.

The 28-year-old, from nearby Pocopaglia, carried out a series of balcony raids, making off with loads of undergarments, The Local reports. Police apparently found that he had “a house full” of them. That’s a pretty vague measurement, but even if his house is tiny, that still sounds like a whole lot of bras.

Though this is the first incident of bra thievery to occur in Bra itself, it’s not the first to occur in Italy. Last year, a 74-year-old man was arrested for stealing 17 bras — but those were from a supermarket, not from ladies’ balconies.

As for this latest bra heist, we can only assume that he’s actually planning a grand international stunt wherein he’ll crisscross the globe, visiting funny-named towns and stealing the nominal items. We have a feeling his next stop will be the town of Dildo.
