Man Arrested for Sending the IRS a Fake Bomb, Marijuana, and…his Own Finger

The Daily Sheeple – by Lily Dane

Well, I guess this is one way to let the IRS know how you feel about them…

A Washington man is facing federal charges for sending an assortment of unusual and disturbing items to an IRS office in Utah.

Federal prosecutors in Tacoma say Normand Lariviere, 68, sent a fake bomb, a bullet, and a marijuana joint.  

Oh, and he also sent one of his own fingers.

From SeattlePi:

Writing the court, a special agent with the Federal Protective Service said Lariviere has been upset with the IRS and other federal agencies since he was laid off in the 1990s from his position as a civilian defense contractor.

Having served eight years in the Navy, Lariviere worked as a civilian electrician for the Navy until the early 1990s. After losing that position, he began filing grievances with federal agencies related to the Department of Defense.

According to charging papers, Lariviere told an IRS agent that he should not have to pay taxes because the government had not satisfied his claims.

When he was interviewed by investigators, Lariviere admitted severing his finger and showed agents the homemade device he used to perform that action.

According to charging papers, Lariviere also admitted to making and sending the fake bomb, and then threatened further action:

“I don’t have a choice if I don’t get an answer. Many things I could do. I’m not going to say. … I’m not going to tip my hand.”

Lariviere was arrested and charged with mailing a threat to injure, and is currently in jail.

  1. “Federal prosecutors in Tacoma say Normand Lariviere, 68, sent a fake bomb, a bullet, and a marijuana joint.

    Waste of a joint.

  2. The IRS should consider themselves lucky that this guy didn’t have a brain. He could have easily become another Andrew Joseph Stack III.

    Piss off enough people, and eventually one or more are going to act out their anger.

  3. Have we gone mad yet…?

    I was born in Tacoma. ..
    Well… actually at Fort Lewis at Madigan hospital.
    Well close enough I guess.

    I suspect there is an unspoken word here to the IRS…. and that’s.

    FK YOU…!

    But not to worry…

    It really could have been worse.
    This guy could have sent his severed penis in the mail with a fake joint and finger.

    Plus using fedx or ups priority overnight.

    Because ya know…when it absolutely has to get there overnight.

    I think I’ll just crap in a post office mailer on tax day next year on a 1040 and send it to the IRS.

    I wonder if they’ll be able to figure out how to tax my sh! T.

    1. Oh that was really funny, especially the last line! i haven’t laughed so hard in a long long time. Maybe we should all send them some, bet it would stink up the whole place, all though they stink pretty bad to begin with!!!

  4. Should have sent a fake joint
    That shows me this guys just not right

    And next time get real

    Can’t wait to see what he does when he gets out
    The suspense is killin me
