    A police deputy in New Mexico has been arrested for stealing a pair of green panties.

    To serve and protect — and steal your underwear.

    New Mexico State Police said a Mora County Sheriff's deputy has admitted of stealing a pair of women's panties from a home while on duty.

    KRQE-TV reported that Deputy Mathew Borrego admitted to stealing the green pair of underwear after another employee spotted the panties in a patrol car.

    A spokesman for the Attorney General's Office says that issue was uncovered during an investigation of Sheriff Thomas Garza.

    Garza is accused of getting into a fight with another deputy last April after telling him to let a DWI suspect that he knew off the hook.

    A state police spokesman said Borrego is a licensed dispatcher. The spokesman said state officials plan on sending Garza a letter saying that using Borrego as a deputy is a liability.
