Belleville’s Sock Bandit Once Again Facing Charges

Belleville, IL (AP)  Belleville’s so-called sock bandit is once again facing charges.

Forty-three-year-old James Dowdy has been charged with burglary after allegedly taking socks from a police “bait car” on Monday. Police describe Dowdy as one with a fetish for women’s socks. He has been arrested over a dozens times since the early nineties for stealing socks.

Dowdy is on parole after receiving a 12-year prison sentence and pleading guilty to walking into a woman’s home and taking her socks in 2008. He served six years in prison for a previous sock-related burglary and received a 3-year prison sentence in 1993 for attempted burglary after police caught him with a bag of stolen socks.
Dowdy remained in the St. Clair County Jail on a $300,000 bond. Online court records don’t list an attorney on his behalf.
