CHAMPLIN, Minn. — A woman admits to sending anonymous threats to a family. In a note, she said she wanted to taste their "delicious" children.

The family received the threat in the mail at the end of September.

The short note read, "The children look delicious. May I have a taste?"

The family also received magazine subscriptions addressed to "Your Tasty Children."

Police were able to trace the mail and arrested 38-year-old Carrie Pernula. She admitted to the threats.

"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," said Champlin Deputy Police Chief Ty Schmidt.

Families in the area said the woman's threats spread quickly on social media, and many families were terrified for their children.

Pernula is now out of jail and is believed to be back at her home.
