North Dakota underwear thief going back to prison

BISMARCK – A Bismarck man convicted four years ago of breaking into a female neighbor’s apartment to steal her underwear has had his probation revoked for a third time.

The Bismarck Tribune reported that 23-year-old David Haberstroh will spend two more years in prison for his 2006 felony burglary conviction.

His probation on that conviction prohibited him from having women’s underwear. He violated that provision and had his probation revoked in 2007 and twice this year. Authorities say in one case he was caught with 119 pairs of women’s underwear.

Defense attorney Robert Quick agreed in court that additional probation in the case was pointless. Haberstroh said he agreed with his attorney and hopes to get treatment in the penitentiary.
