Lawrence police arrested a Lawrence man for charges of burglary, theft and property damage after he was found with items from Weaver’s Department Store, 901 Massachusetts.

At 12:28 a.m., police responded to a call of a burglary in progress after a caller reported a hooded person had broken a display window at the store. Behind the window were socks and pantyhose.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Anthony Brixius said police noticed a person in the area matching the description and carrying items of clothing. Police questioned and arrested the 27-year-old man.

Even if the guy is homeless and was cold, I have no sympathy for him. Lawrence has an abundance of donated used clothing available. The guy needs to plan ahead.

Yeah, this guy definitely falls more into the "drunk idiot" and less into the "sad homeless person" category.

On just about any casual walk down Mass., at least a couple of mentally ill individuals can easily be spotted. It would not al all surprise me if this were just such an example.

In WWII pantyhose was traded for many things including "sex". Maybe the trend id returning.

That's amazing. Especially since pantyhose weren't generally available until the 1960s.

Nylons were available and hot comodities in the early 40's. Can you dispute that?

That's just another example of snap's understanding of a topic coupled with irrefutable logic.

Nylon was not available for stockings during WWII - military forces needed it. Silk stockings were hot commodities for females during WWII. No pantyhose until after the Korean War.

Not trying to. You did use the term "pantyhose". Can you dispute that?

Stockings and pantyhose are not the same thing.

Learn something new every day, though I didn't expect it to do with women's leg coverings.

He ment nylons. You are probably to young to have ever seen a pair.

"pantyhose" became generally available in the 60s. sheer hosiery, silk stockings, rayon (aka: artificial silk) stockings, and nylon stockings date back to the roaring 20s. that silk stockings were hard to get during wartime made them "valuable" as a trade item.

I remember when those skimpy bathing suits came out in the earlier part of last century. Them girls were naked all the way up to the elbow. Bloomers with their knees showing, it was awful.

I'll just admit I have a pantyhose fetish, but I don't wear them. Australian lifeguards claim they wear them to protect them from jellyfish but I think they really enjoy it.

Ask Robin (Battiest) Spencer. He would know about panty hose!
