Apple Valley neighbors' feud leads to blizzard of magazines

No one wants to live next to a Mexican Pit Bull owner.

"Sanchez, 50, was charged Wednesday in Dakota County District Court with two counts of felony stalking.

Anderson, 55, said the trouble started when she tried to talk to Sanchez about her two dogs urinating and defecating in her yard. After talking to Sanchez many times without success, she said, she went to the homeowners association.

Apple Valley police Capt. Mike Marben said many of the magazines weren't cheap. The Danbury Mint, for example, cost $106.50.

Sanchez initially denied any involvement in the magazine subscriptions. But when police searched her home on Jan. 22, she admitted filling in Anderson's name and address on the subscription cards, according to the criminal complaint.

"I did them all," Sanchez allegedly told police.

"She explained there had been a lot of rift between the two of them because [Anderson] had reportedly turned Sanchez in to the homeowner association concerning Sanchez's dog reportedly using [Anderson's] yard as a bathroom," the complaint said. "She admitted she was frustrated with her neighbor and did not feel she could get in trouble for this."

Anderson said the magazines were just the final straw in an ongoing battle. She accused Sanchez of pouring bleach on five bushes in her yard, trying to snap the trunk of a newly planted tree, swiping a UPS package from her doorstep and other misdeeds.

"The list goes on and on," Anderson said. "I can't prove any of the other stuff. When she does it, I'm either up north or I'm sleeping. She thinks it's funny. She thinks bullying me is funny."

No one answered phone calls to Sanchez's home Wednesday. She was charged by summons and will make her first court appearance in four to six weeks, the county attorney's office said.

"I'm putting my house up for sale," Anderson said. "I can't live next to her. I don't know what she's going to do next."
