A New York judge who admitted he had “urges” to steal women’s underwear was removed temporarily from the judicial bench Friday.

Long Island judge Robert Cicale, accused of breaking into his old intern’s house and stealing her dirty underwear, pleaded not guilty to burglary charges as well, the Associated Press reports.

“He was found to be in possession with soiled female undergarments that we believe were either proceeds of this burglary or a prior burglary,” Suffolk County Acting Police Commissioner Stuart Cameron said Thursday.

The woman reportedly spotted Cicale leaving her house and called her mother and the police. Police picked up Cicale a few blocks from the house where he was carrying a pair of dirty underwear.

Cicale claimed the underwear they found on him was from another time he had broken into her home. He also admitted he had broken into her home before.

A judge set Cicale’s bail at $25,000.
