WRIGHT CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – A 19 year-old eastern Missouri man is accused of stealing 59 pairs of women’s underwear along with female clothing, sex toys, photographs and feminine hygiene products.
Michael Stout is charged with four counts of burglary, four counts of stealing and one count of property damage.
Stout is jailed on $100,000 cash-only bond.
Warren County deputies were called to a home Wednesday after a 16-year-old girl heard an intruder in the bathroom. Police say Stout ran into a wooded area but police dogs helped track him down.
Stout had been watching female residents in his neighborhood and targeting their homes for several months, according to police.
