Police say a student faces charges after he allegedly mailed three packages containing animal excrement to a vice principal at his school.

According to The Daily Times of Salisbury, Mark Flynn, the vice principal at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, Maryland, called the police when he received a package through the post office that contained fecal matter.

A few days later, a postal inspector notified authorities that two more similar packages had been dropped off at the post office, addressed to Flynn at the high school. It was later determined that both packages also contained fecal matter.

A 12th-grader at the school was identified as the person who was dropping off the packages. He was followed and later arrested at a McDonald’s restaurant beside the high school, where he admitted to mailing the packages. He told police the excrement was not human, but belonged to dogs and cows.

He was charged with three counts of disturbing activities at school and three counts of molesting a school administrator. Police pointed out that in this case, molestation does not mean anything of a sexual nature, but refers to an unwarranted or malicious bothering.
