Carrie Pernula, 38, has since been arrested and admitted sending the anonymous threats.

She had become riled by children making noising and leaving items strewn across her yard, according to police.

The first anonymous threats came in a note, which read: “The children look delicious. May I have a taste?”

The family from Champlin, Minnesota, that she had targeted have two children of primary school age, and were left duly terrified.312728

They called police and took to a community Facebook page, posting: “Opened our mail today to this letter. Obviously my stomach started doing somersaults.”

Then the campaign against the family in Champlin, Minnesota, intensified.

Magazine subscriptions started to arrive in the name of “tasty children” or similar words.

Champlin police managed to trace the subscriptions to Pernula, who was arrested on Friday last week and faces possible charges of gross misdemeanour terroristic threats and stalking.

Ty Schmidt, Champlin deputy police chief, said: “Instead of a name on the address label it said things like ‘tasty children’.

“She was angry because the kids were leaving things in her yard and I think being a little noisy, being kids, the way kids are.”Neighbours said they felt terrified for their children after news of the case spread like wildfire on social media.

Pernula was released from jail on Monday and is believed to be back at home.

She admitted to investigators that she sent notes and magazines because the children at that house were “always putting stuff on her porch.”

The Champlin city attorney is reviewing her case before deciding whether or not to charge Pernula.
