A kinky pervert stole and kept 5,000 pairs of women's underwear stacked to the ceiling at his home.

Stunned cops say they uncovered the underwear mountain inside a Melbourne property belonging to Joshua Murrell.

Murrell, of Reservoir, north of Melbourne, is now behind bars, accused of stealing the undies off clothes lines around his home for the past five years.

The 34-year-old was arrested on Monday after one of his victims caught him in a sting operation, when she set up CCTV cameras after repeatedly having her smalls nicked in the dead of night.

Murrell was found on the floor of his bedroom, which was stuffed sky high with women's undies when police finally caught up with him.

The pervert's lair also had a replica gun, a sex doll dressed in stolen undies, sex toys and a mobile phone allegedly containing videos of Murrell performing vile acts upon it.

He has been charged with 10 offences spanning a 12-month period, including stalking, theft, weapons and trespass offences.

Appearing at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, via telephone from prison, his request to be bailed was refused due to concerns about re-offending.

The court heard police are in discussions with nearly a dozen terrified women, who claim to have had undies stolen from clothes lines around Murrell's home, with many too terrified to return home.

Police claim the father-of-one, had crept into the backyards of his various victims in the dead of night to steal undies, bras and active wear.

One victim claimed Murrell had tried to gain access into her home to steal undies drying on a clothes horse in her laundry.

Detective Senior Constable Amanda Wright claimed Murrell had been storing dirty undies and bras taken from clothes hampers as well as wet items from outside.

The court heard Murrell had been previously nabbed stealing undies from a Myer department store

"I'm disgusted. I've no excuse," Murrell told police after his arrest.

When asked about the doll, Murrell claimed it was "just a bit of fun to cuddle".

He will return to court later this year.
