Brightly-coloured skivvies may have sunk a Saint John thief earlier this week.
Saint John police officers called to the Burger King on Rothesay Avenue on Monday night where a 27-year-old man was seen on video taking money and leaving the restaurant.
Staff thought he may be a former employee. His underwear with a bright blue band and red stripe can be seen in the video when he bends over.
Hours later the officers found the former BK employee and determined he was wearing the same underwear.
They also learned he had the keys to the restaurant in his duffle bag.
Police says the man was arrested and later confessed.
A large amount of cash was recovered by police.
