3,000 pairs of underwear found in Ohio
Police in Ohio responded to an interesting call last week. After the call came in, officers found 3,000 pairs of underwear, some clean and some used, along side of a highway near Berne Township. Police believe the underwear appeared to have been dumped out of plastic shopping bags from local grocery and department stores. It took officers over two hours to pack the panties into 10 garbage bags. Police are still at odds as to where the underwear came from and who may have dumped it there.
