PRESTON (AP) — A Minnesota mother and her 19-year-old son have pleaded guilty in a stolen frozen gopher feet case.

Thirty-seven-year-old Tina Marie Garrison and her son, Junior Lee Dillon, both of Preston, pleaded guilty Monday 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 Nov. 23 and Dec. 5.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 16.
