A MASSEUR stole a neighbour's undergarments and then used a pair of G-strings as a sex prop in his bedroom.

Beh Yong Chun, 22, was placed on 15 months' probation today. He had pleaded guilty in July to committing theft.

Arguing that his client should not be sent to jail, defence counsel Josephus Tan said that Beh is of borderline intelligence and had been diagnosed by the Institute of Mental Health as suffering from a fetish for women's lingerie.

The prosecution had initially objected to probation as he is a Malaysian with no roots here.
