Sometimes, a criminal does something so stupid you can’t help but laugh at their actions. Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun reported that a 37-year-old construction worker was arrested for starting a laundry fire while stealing three pairs of women’s underwear.

According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, the man was drunk when he decided to light a hanging towel on fire. Some drying underwear caught his attention while lighting the fire, so he decided to steal them for fun.
