MILFORD, Mass. (AP) – Dozens of pantyhose have been left near a Milford school bus stop – causing sheer annoyance in the neighborhood.

The pantyhose – sometimes new, sometimes used – has been left on Camp Street for more than two years. They’re almost always black and queen sized.

Resident Laurie Warich told the Milford Daily News she picked up 43 pairs in one day.

Police say they’ve done some investigating and talked to one suspect. But Chief Thomas O’Loughlin said the only crime is littering – and they don’t have the resources to focus on the case.

That’s left some neighbors discussing doing their own amateur sting with video cameras and walkie talkies to catch the culprit, whom they’ve dubbed the “Pantyhose Bandit.”

2 men hold up credit union

MADISON (AP) – Police are seeking two men who held up a tiny credit union in Madison, then fled in a car with three other occupants.

The Wednesday morning holdup was the third in the past four years at the Franklin Somerset Federal Credit Union on Main Street.

The robbers displayed a gun during the robbery and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police Chief Barry Moores described the robbers as young black males between 5-foot-10 and 6-feet tall with slim builds and wearing hooded sweatshirts.

Moores said the suspects fled into woods behind the bank on foot and then made their getaway in a brown car that was waiting at a boat landing on the Kennebec River.
