Oxford man indicted in lingerie thefts

By The Associated Press

OXFORD — A Lafayette County grand jury has indicted an Oxford man on 11 counts of burglary related to a series of break-ins in local homes and the theft of women’s panties and other under garments.

Prosecutors tell the Oxford Eagle that the grand jury indicted 32-year-old Joseph Paul Lillo earlier this month.

Prosecutors say Lillo is accused of having broken into at least 11 homes, stealing lingerie, bathing suits and photographs of women.

He is being held at the Lafayette County Detention Center without bond.

Lillo faces up to 25 years in prison on each count if convicted.

No trial date has been set.
