A thief who was arrested on charges of theft, complained that the purse he had stolen from a young woman contained only soiled panties, police in Nigeria said.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Lagos State Police said that they have arrested 25-year-old Adekanmi Najim, after being accused of snatching the purse, which contained panties soiled with human waste.

Najim told investigators that he thought the bag contained cash and other valuables. He grabbed the bag away from the woman and went home to see what was inside.

Najim said that he was shocked to find soiled underpants. Najim also confessed to stealing three motorcycles and numerous purses.

He sold the stolen motorcycles for about N35,000 ($172) each. Najim will be brought before a magistrate’s court judge for a bail hearing.
