PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Tigard man linked to the disappearance of a 19-year-old college student has pleaded innocent to unrelated theft and burglary charges.

Sung Koo Kim, 30, faces six counts of burglary and three counts of theft in Multnomah County.

He has been charged with stealing thousands of pairs of women's underwear from college dormitories in three Oregon counties, and is expected to face charges in a fourth later this week.

Kim, who has pleaded innocent to all charges, is being held in Multnomah County on $10 million bail. He also faces $4 million bail in Yamhill County and $100,000 bail in Benton County.

Prosecutors say Kim stole women's underwear and other clothing from dormitories at three Portland colleges: Lewis and Clark College, Concordia University and the University of Portland.

Police and prosecutors have named Kim as a suspect in the disappearance of Brigham Young University student Brooke Wilberger, who vanished from a Corvallis apartment complex on May 24.
