Here's a way to burn some bridges.

Frustrated by a string of job-seeking failures, a St. Louis man decided to let those companies know how he felt by sending them packages of cat poop in the mail, The Associated Press reported.

Investigators connected 20 of the stinky bundles to 58-year-old Jevons Brown.

He was sentenced to two years of probation on Friday after pleading guilty in August to a misdemeanor charge of mailing injurious articles, UPI reported.

"This is not a victimless crime," Assistant U.S. Attorney John Bodenhausen said in court.

Those victims, he said, included the postal workers handling the doo-doo, people whose mail was adjacent to the packages and the people who received them, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
