Thief busted after stealing light bulb while wearing only women’s underwear: video

He’s not the brightest bulb in the box.

A Texas man clad only in a skimpy pair of pink and gray women’s panties was busted on criminal trespassing charges after he was caught on camera on a stranger’s porch — where, for whatever reason, he unscrewed a light bulb, police said.

Heavily tattooed Michael Anthony Jimenez, 36, was caught on the Wylie homeowner’s Ring home security system at about 11 p.m. Saturday.

His face and elaborate bodywork are clearly visible in the 65-second clip, which was posted online in an effort to hunt him down.

“It looks like the tattoo on his back says Jimenez, but it’s hard to be sure,” the homeowner’s brother posted on Reddit. “My brother’s got kids and a wife so he’s pretty freaked out since it looks like the guy was casing the place.”

About 30 minutes later, Jimenez unscrewed a light bulb on the back porch and footprints were found on a window into a child’s bedroom, according to the Reddit post.

Jimenez was arrested on a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge Wednesday, WFAA reports. He has previous criminal convictions in Dallas County, where he was found guilty of indecency with a child in 2004, according to the station.

Jimenez had also been previously charged with burglary of a habitation, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance, court records show.

Jimenez remained held Friday on $2,500 bail at a Collin County jail. Police have not indicated a motive behind his actions, WFAA reports.

Some Reddit users, meanwhile, couldn’t resist joking about the incident, saying Jimenez was in obvious need of some light in his life.

“He’s been getting dressed in the dark, hence the Victoria Secret panties,” one comment read.

Another user wrote: “I’m upset that he looks better in panties than I do!”
