Charges: Man stalked his ex-girlfriend, sent her pizzas and a dead rat

The accused had a restraining order taken out against him by his ex, but he violated it twice.

A man accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend allegedly sent her more than $100 worth of pizza she didn't order – oh, and a dead rat.

A stalking charge was filed this week against Raymond Lloyd Jamison, 40, of St. Paul,.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Feb. 16, Jamison sent $124 worth of Topper's Pizza to his ex-girlfriend's home, and is said to have called the store "multiple times" to make sure it was delivered.

He followed this up a day later with a FedEx package addressed to his ex's son was delivered their home. Jamison's ex said she "saw a tail" as she opened the package.

After calling police, an officer found the package contained a dead rat.

Police traced this to Jamison after seeing video of the transaction at the Lakeville FedEx, matching the clothing he was wearing at the time to the clothes they found at his house when executing a search warrant.

Jamison's ex has a harassment restraining order out against him, which stops him from having contact with her. He's been charged with violating it twice.

Since the order was made, his ex told police he had left her harassing voicemails, sent her several emails and text messages, filed a complaint with her employer alleging improper conduct and made a false child abuse report alleging she was abusing her son.
