Re: A burglar has been jailed after his "novelty" underwear was held up in court and used as evidence against him.<br />
Darren Machon, 39, of Maesteg, had denied burgling a house in Park Street, Bridgend, in February.<br />
But a witness spotted his "distinctive" boxer shorts after she saw him bent over while rummaging through cupboards, a statement from South Wales Police said.<br />
He was jailed for 34 months on Tuesday after a trial at Cardiff Crown Court.<br />
Machon was arrested for the burglary while he was in police custody for a separate offence, the police statement said.<br />
As he was getting changed in his cell, an officer noticed his underwear, which had pictures of hot dogs and doughnuts, matched those described by the witness of a burglary earlier that day.
