Women's underwear has been repeatedly stolen from washing lines in Fernhill, police said.

Senior Constable Chris Blackford, of Queenstown, said bras and knickers were reported stolen and it appeared thefts had been happening for at least three months.

If anyone suspected clothing was stolen they should report it to police.

"Petty theft of ladies' underwear can lead to more serious offending if not checked," he said.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday at 7.30am police spoke to a 61-year-old transient man in Queenstown's central business district. The man was allegedly carrying three knives and making comments about stabbing people.

He was referred for a mental health assessment. The Salvation Army arranged for the man to travel by bus to Picton.
