OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KFOR) A man whose criminal history includes convictions for rape, voyeurism and domestic assault and battery is in jail for stealing women’s underwear from an Oklahoma City University laundry room.

Howard Edward Payton, 36, has been charged with two counts of petit larceny, arrested after Oklahoma City University police said he snuck into an on-campus housing facility and stole panties on at least three occasions.

According to court documents, surveillance cameras captured Payton stealing the underwear Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights last week.

Officers detained Payton Friday night, after catching him on tape a third time, and asked him what he was doing on campus.

He replied: “something stupid officer,” according to the affidavit. Police said he later told them he was stealing the panties for his girl.

The affidavit also states that seven pairs of panties were found on Payton during a police search.
