Stolen Gopher Feet



A mother and her 18 year old son are accused of stealing nearly $5,000 in frozen gopher feet and selling them for a bounty.
 
37 year old Tina Marie Garrison and Junior Lee Dillon, both of Preston, were charged last month with receiving stolen property and theft. They allegedly gave the feet to local townships that offer rewards as they try to limit the gopher population.  Garrison has pleaded not guilty. Her son has a hearing next month.
 
The complaint says a gopher trapper reported to authorities that bags of feet were stolen from his freezer. According to the complaint, the owner found Dillon had turned in $1,014 in feet in November. In December, Garrison turned in $3,780 in feet.  The Post-Bulletin reports Dillon denied turning in any feet for the bounty.
