SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -

A Santa Cruz man whose probation terms ban him from possessing women's underwear was arrested again on Thursday.

Sheriff's deputies said they responded to a 911 call in Live Oak and found Conrad William Smith fighting with his mother.

The 47-year-old man was not only in possession of women's underwear, he was also wearing panties, Santa Cruz County Sheriff's deputies said. Smith was booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail Thursday night on charges of resisting arrest and violating his probation terms.

Smith has a long history of stealing women's underwear, court records show.

His most recent arrest happened in January 2011, when he stole a woman's bras and underwear from a laundry room at an apartment complex on 24th Ave. in Live Oak. When investigators went to Smith's mobile home on the 700 block of 26th Ave., there were women's panties and bras draped around the outside of the mobile home, in a bedroom and in an outdoor shed, deputies said. 

Oddly enough, earlier this week another person in Santa Cruz was also arrested on suspicion of raiding women's underwear drawers.

Santa Cruz police officers responded to a 911 call about 5:55 a.m. Tuesday after a woman woke up to noises in her home and saw a teenage boy darting out of her bathroom, Santa Cruz Police Deputy Chief Steve Clark said.

Officers found a 16-year-old boy hiding inside a vacant apartment nearby with several pairs of underwear belonging to multiple women. The boy, whose name was not released because he is a minor, was booked into Santa Cruz County Juvenile Hall on charges of burglary.
