A man with a shoe fetish was arrested after stealing 126 pairs of flip flops from his neighbors over the course of two years.

Per U.K.’s Metro, 24-year-old Theerapat Klaiya was arrested in Thailand recently after being caught on CCTV footage filmed by one of his victims showing Klaiya stealing their flip flops. Once the Nonthaburi police identified Klaiya from the footage, they then searched the home where they found dozens of pairs of flip flops.

Klaiya admitted to having a fetish and “…allegedly told officers that after several hours of wearing the flip-flops, he cuddled and kissed them, stripping off and rubbing them on his body, before ‘having sex with them’.”

Nonthaburi Major Colonel Ekkaphop Prasitwattanachai said in a statement to the media, “After we arrested the suspect, we also found out that he had already been arrested last year for stealing flip-flops in another district. He fully admitted stealing the sandals for lewd purposes, so will be detained at the station until a court appearance for prosecutors to decide on the next part of the legal process for him.”

Klaiya is being charged with three counts of “nighttime theft and snatching, possessing a digital transceiver without permission, and violating the coronavirus curfew.”

While we certainly don’t mean to fetish or kink shame, you should really do so without stealing from people. Perhaps seek/put an ad out on Craigslist the way the Lord intended.
