ODESSA - One man is behind bars on charges of stalking after stealing women's undergarments from a laundry room.

Odessa Police received a report back on January 28 when the victim saw a white Hispanic male inside the laundry room of the Golden Crest Apartments, on two separate occasions, staring at her while she was washing some clothes.

The victim told police that when she was retrieving her clothes she realized her undergarments were missing.

Officers were later able to find 35-year-old Orlando Bernal through the use of surveillance video as well as the victim identifying Bernal.

After getting a search warrant, officers did find several undergarments such as panties and bras in Bernal's apartment and some of the garments had a strong odor of laundry detergent.

Police also said that Bernal's window had a clear view to the entry of the victim's apartment.

Bernal has been arrested on charges of stalking.
