Norman Lariviere, 68, of Olympia, was charged Monday for allegedly mailing a fake bomb to IRS workers in Ogden, Utah on July 6, Seattle PI reported. Charging papers also said he sent his finger, a bullet and a marijuana joint to tax collectors in 2016.

Lariviere admitted to investigators that he was the man who severed his finger and even showed the agents “the homemade device he utilized to perform the action.”
