Man Arrested In Women’s Clothing Theft

A Newcastle man was arrested for burglary and other charges Monday night after Placer County Sheriff’s deputies found him in an Auburn motel room with women’s clothing stolen from a nearby room.

Jim Kirk Bittick, 53, denied taking the panties, bra, nightgown, pants and a blouse that two motel guests reported stolen from their suitcases at the Super 8 Auburn motel. However, after Bittick gave deputies consent to search his room, all of the missing pieces of clothing were found.

Bittick was booked at the Placer County Jail on charges of burglary, possessing known stolen property and two counts of petty theft. He posted $10,000 bail and was released Tuesday morning.
