Minnesota Mailman

MARCH 3--A Minnesota mailman is facing burglary and bestiality charges after he “did carnally know a dog” owned by a customer on his delivery route, according to court records.

Brian Chapman, 21, allegedly engaged in a “sexual act with a dog” last month as he delivered mail in a rural area outside the city of Crookston (pop. 7891). Chapman is pictured at right.

According to a criminal complaint, the dog’s owner told police that he became suspicious after noticing “the mailman has been spending a long period of time in his garage.” The man added that he was “going to call the post office to have them tell his mailman to stop going into his garage to leave packages.”

While he was not there when the mailman arrived, the homeowner “gets notifications on his phone when someone comes onto his property,” which is outfitted with security cameras.

The homeowner told police that he “wanted to know what the mailman was doing in his garage for long periods of time,” so he reviewed surveillance footage. On February 7, Chapman was recorded entering the garage around 1:30 PM and setting down a package. The mailman then engaged in a “sexual act with a dog, which was in the garage,” reported Polk County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Kyle Olson.

Chapman is charged with burglary, a felony, for entering the garage and bestiality, a misdemeanor, for his encounter with the animal. (2 pages)
