Fargo man who carried ladies underwear, porn into stranger's bathroom charged with possession of drug paraphernalia
Christopher Mahoney, who is 46 or 47, was charged Tuesday in Cass County District Court with Class C felony possession of drug paraphernalia.
Court documents state police officers responded March 8 to a call of a suspicious male hanging out in an apartment building bathroom at 702 3rd St. N.
When officers arrived, Mahoney was just leaving the bathroom. He told them he did not live in the building, but had been walking home and stopped by when he needed to use the bathroom.
Inside the bathroom, officers found a bloody syringe on a shelf above the toilet, and “quite a bit of pornography laying around the bathroom, which Mahoney admitted that he had accidentally left,” police allege in court documents.
When police asked to search Mahoney’s backpack, they found the light bulb and women’s underclothes, along with more pornography. Mahoney told officers the syringes and bulb were not his, and that someone he was with must have put them in his backpack.
