A Limerick teenager was charged with three counts of burglary after admitting to stealing women’s undergarments from local homes, York County Sheriff William L. King Jr. said Sunday.

King said a woman who spotted someone “peeping” in her windows Saturday notified police.

Deputies located the “peeper,” who lives in the neighborhood, King said. During an interview, the boy “admitted to looking in the house and later admitted to breaking into several homes and stealing underwear,” the sheriff added in a statement.

King said the boy had also broken into three homes on Sept. 30 and stolen women’s undergarments. He led deputies to hiding spots in a wooded area where the officers recovered nearly 70 pieces of stolen underwear.

The victims identified most of their undergarments, King said.

The boy was issued a summons on the burglary charges and will appear in juvenile court Dec. 5.
