Mother & Son Plead Guilty to Stealing Gopher Feet
PRESTON, MN (AP) - A Minnesota mother and her 19-year-old son have pleaded guilty in a stolen frozen gopher feet case.
Tina Marie Garrison and her son, Junior Dillon, both of Preston, have pleaded guilty to gross misdemeanor receiving stolen property.
The two were accused of stealing nearly $5,000 in frozen gopher feet from a freezer in Granger and selling them to Harmony Township for a $3 per pair bounty.
The complaint says a gopher trapper contacted the Fillmore County sheriff's office in December, saying bags of frozen gopher feet had been stolen from his freezer between November 23 and December 5.
They're due to be sentenced in December.
