(Scroll down for video) Women were shocked to find their underwear hidden in the ceiling of their building.
Residents in Yulin, Guangxi, China, were treated to a colorful array of more than 2,000 sets of lingerie, which were carefully laid out on the sidewalk in their neighborhood on Saturday.
The worn underwear, which belonged to the women in the neighborhood, had been stolen by a male resident over the course of a year.
The man hid the stolen underwear above ceiling tiles in a number of stairwells in the residential building where he lived.
The perverted acts was uncovered only when a ceiling above one stairwell gave way under the weight of the stolen underwear.
Police who identified the thief as Tan, 30, said that the suspect was able to gain unrestricted access to the apartments without breaking into the homes because he had a master key in his possession.
