OKLAHOMA CITY -- A man was arrested the day after Valentine's Day for attempting to steal women's underwear from a local store.

Jeremy Lynn Peterson was arrested on one count each of trespassing and larceny of merchandise after he was observed concealing two pairs of panties in his pocket and attempting to leave a Wal-mart store.

Peterson was stopped as he attempted to leave the store.  He then threw the panties down,  shoved a Wal-mart employee, and ran into a nearby Staples store.

Oklahoma City Police spotted Peterson as he was leaving the bathroom of the Staples store and arrested him.  Apparently Peterson had been caught stealing from another Wal-mart store last year, and had been banned from the stores.
