Man accused of mailing dog feces to S. Dakota government official

By Associated Press

PIERRE, S.D. » Federal prosecutors say a South Dakota man tried mailing a package of dog feces to a county official.

The Argus Leader reports that 49-year-old Tom J. Parsons, of Pierre, has been charged with mailing injurious articles, which is a misdemeanor.

An indictment filed Monday alleges Parsons mailed a first-class package containing dog feces addressed to Dewey County Treasurer Kelli Mowrer.

Mowrer says Parsons was doing business with her office because he was a lien holder on a vehicle being sold in Dewey County.

Mowrer says the postal service called her to say the package smelled bad and asked for permission to keep it and investigate.

Court records do not indicate that Parsons has a lawyer.
