Police accuse man of defecating in ex-girlfriend's purse

MOORHEAD – Police here have accused a man of swiping an ex-girlfriend’s purse and defecating in it.

A Moorhead woman reported the man harassed her at work earlier this month. That night, he arrived at the apartment where she was spending the night, and when she would not come out of a bedroom to talk with him, he left, taking her purse with him, police allege in court records.

A few days later, the man brought the purse to her at the Salon Professional School in Fargo, laid it at her feet and left, court records say.

Inside, the woman found human feces. Cash and a pair of sunglasses were also missing.

Cody Brandon Finley, 23, told police he defecated in the woman’s purse because she cheated on him, police allege in court documents.

Finley showed officers a video of the feces inside the purse and him returning it to the woman.

Finley was cited with disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property and theft.

The sunglasses and $60 were returned to the woman.
