Elkhart County - The Marshal of Millersburg, IN is facing charges for allegedly possessing women's underwear that did not belong to him 

The Marshal, David Keith Hathaway, was charged with two counts of criminal Conversion, a Class A misdemeanor by the Elkhart County Prosecuting Attorney.

The Prosecutor defines Conversion as the crime of exerting unauthorized control over property of another person.

An Indiana State Police investigation determined that in October 2013 and again in February 2014, Hathaway had unauthorized possession of women's underwear belonging to another and for an unauthorized purpose.

It's punishable for up to one year in jail and a fine up to $5000. 

Court documents give further details of the accusations against Hathaway.  According to an affidavit filed Wednesday a woman contacted the Indiana State Police in February "and reported that in October of 2013, she discovered a pair of her panties that had been missing hidden in a safe belonging to David Keith Hathaway, her boyfriend's father and the Millersburg Town Marshal, with whom she and her boyfriend resided."

In February of 2014, police say the woman and her boyfriend "placed a hidden video camera in their room to record any unauthorized entry or activity."  Police say when the woman reviewed the video she saw Hathaway pick up her underwear "then inhale deeply."

According to a detective on the case, Hathaway admitted "that he does have a problem, namely a panty fetish, for which he is seeking 'help.'"

Police say Hathaway also admitted to having the woman's panties in a safe with several other pairs.
