East Lansing – Police said a 19-year-old Michigan State University student who pilfered 79 pairs of women's panties faces possible charges.

East Lansing Police Sgt Florene McGlothian-Taylor told The Detroit News all 79 items were thongs.

McGlothian-Taylor said the suspect, who has not been named, was arrested on April 7 after another student saw him taking underwear from a dryer in a dorm basement laundry room.

Police have been investigating since March 22, when someone reported the theft of 15 pairs of panties from the same laundry.

The man told police it was a prank and denied having a sex addiction.

Police have since released the student.

McGlothian-Taylor says one victim wants to file charges but that Ingham County prosecutors must decide if he will be charged.
