A Jonesboro man is being held on $15,000 bond after police say he stole women's and children's clothes, then took photos of himself wearing them for "sexual fantasy purposes."

On Wednesday Craighead County District Court Judge Curt Huckaby found probable cause to charge Jamie Allen Powell, 38, with residential burglary and possession of a controlled substance.

According to the police report, Allen stole several large bags of women's clothing from a trailer park in the 1600-block of Arrowhead Farm Road where he worked as a maintenance man.

Police said they found the clothes and several other items in a barn on the property.

Witnesses told police that Powell, who is homeless, stored his belongings in the barn and would sleep in empty trailers.

Among the items police found, according to the report, were more than a dozen pairs of women's panties. Some of them had holes cut in the crotch, according to the report.

Police also found a 24-month baby diaper cover with a hole cut in the crotch, along with a training bra, blue princess outfit, a child's bathing suit top, and a stuffed dog.

After he was taken into custody and read his Miranda rights, police say Powell "admitted to being present when the women's clothing items were taken."

Powell reportedly told police he wears the women's clothing and "photographs himself in the clothing for sexual fantasy purposes."

Powell is scheduled to appear in Circuit Court on October 31.
