(Portland, Oregon-AP) -- The one man to be publicly named as a person of interest in the disappearance of a 19-year-old Brigham Young University student has been arrested by Oregon police on unrelated theft and burglary charges.

Thirty-year-old Sung Koo Kim is accused of stealing underwear from three different college dormitories or laundry rooms starting in October 2002.

He was arrested today by Portland police. He's scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow.

The arrest comes just four days after Kim pleaded innocent to charges of stealing women's underwear on May second from a dorm room at Oregon State University in Corvallis.

Brigham Young University student Brooke Wilberger disappeared three weeks after that date from an apartment complex near Oregon State.

She hasn't been seen since, despite a massive search and investigation.

Authorities say Kim remains one of four "persons of interest" in the case.
