Underwear Thief Arrested in Greeley
A 39-year-old Greeley man has been arrested after police searched his home and found more than 350 stolen pieces of women’s clothing — mostly undergarments. Joey Eugene Gallegos was arrested after two women reported their underwear had been stolen from their apartment complex laundry room in the 1800 block of 30th Street.
Greeley Police Chief Jerry Garner said, “This type of fetish, a fetish for stealing women’s underwear, very often leads to sexual assault later.”
Gallegos is being held in the Weld County Jail on $50,000 bond and faces burglary and theft charges. He is scheduled to appear in Weld District Court on Aug. 30th. Police believe Gallegos took items from numerous people, and they’re asking anyone who may be a victim to contact detective Matt Walsh at (970) 350-9549.
