*BREAKING NEWS* Panty pirate’s name released

The Oxford Police Department has released the name of the man they claim has broken into about 14 homes in the LOU community since June, stealing the under garments of at least nine women.

Lillo was arrested Sunday in Marshall County after investigators obtained a warrant when a witness reported seeing Lillo’s vehicle on Eagle Nest Lane on Saturday. A woman returning home at about 6 p.m. discovered her house had been broken into and that someone had stolen her panties. (October 4, 2010)
