Prankster faces misdemeanor after mail droppings

Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies are recommending a disturbing-the-peace charge for a Stateline man who admitted placing feces in a mail box at the Safeway store in Round Hill, according to a deputy’s report.

Alan Yokoyama, 35, allegedly put the feces in the mailbox where safety concern logs are kept. An assistant manager at the store came in contact with the feces when retrieving the logs around 12 a.m. May 14.

Video surveillance showed Yokoyama placing the feces in the mailbox, according to the report. Yokoyama was fired from the store about a year-and-a-half ago and allegedly told deputies he put the feces in the mailbox because he had a couple beers and “it was just a stupid prank.”

The incident has been forwarded to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
