The man charged with breaking into several homes and stealing women’s lingerie has been denied bond.
Joseph Paul Lillo, of the Law Hills community in Marshall County, was arrested Sunday and charged with 11 counts of burglary for allegedly breaking into homes in the LOU area since June.
Often referred to as the “panty pirate” and “panty bandit,” Lillo was sent back to the Lafayette County Detention Center Monday afternoon to await his trial without being granted bond, according to information provided by the Oxford Police Department. A reason for the denial was not given.
Lillo, 32, grew up in Lafayette County and attended Lafayette High School where he was a cadet in the ROTC program. He also attended Abbeville First Baptist Church. In the last few years, he moved to Marshall County where he is employed as a mill worker. (October 5, 2010, Page 1)
