Underwear thief caught on camera stealing from laundromat

A thief who was caught on camera taking women's bras and undies from a regional Victorian laundromat is being hunted by police.

Footage shows a man inside Nicholson Street laundromat at Warrnambool, in Victoria's southwest, about 9.30pm on January 10 first rummaging through unclaimed clothes.

In the video, the man can then be seen poking around the washing centre, appearing to be searching for something when he spots clothes in a dryer.

Police say he took women's bras and underwear from the dryer before leaving on his bike.

The offender has been described as a grey-bearded Caucasian man in his 40s.

He was wearing a dark cap, black T-shirt, grey track pants and tan boots.

Victoria Police have released photos and CCTV of a man they believe can help them with their investigations.
