Veronica Grey: Australian who tried to post POO to Leonardo DiCaprio and Jared Leto marked as ‘Valentine confectionery’ learns his fate in court

More than 20 packages containing faeces and urine were posted from Western Australia to Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jared Leto, a court has heard.

Veronica Grey, who identifies as male, got a two-year good behaviour bond for sending satchels containing his frozen waste from post offices in Perth, Lesmurdie, High Wycombe and Kalamunda.

The 23 packages were labelled as ‘Valentine confectionery’ and posted to DiCaprio and Leto at various addresses in California, in what Grey admitted was ‘poor judgement’.

The bizarre contents were discovered when one parcel leaked onto an Australia Post worker when it burst during transit, the ABC reported.

Grey, who is in Australia on a temporary bridging visa, was charged with five counts of using a postal service to menace, harass or cause offence from February 2 to 8.

The Philippines-born man had ticked boxes on the packaging declaring the contents did not include any prohibited items.

At Broome Magistrates Court on Wednesday, Grey’s lawyer Kaia Gooding said he sent the packages to the actors because they, like him, are passionate about the environment.

A psychiatric report found that Grey had not considered the consequences of his actions due to a mental impairment.

‘The risk of re-offending is non-existent,’ Ms Gooding said.

Magistrate Deen Potter said Grey’s actions had a ‘significant impact’ on postal operations, with personal protective equipment having to be used.

‘Based on your world views being outside of the accepted norms … you weren’t motivated by malice,’ Mr Potter said.

But he added that ‘In a world of increasingly political polarisation … the court must discourage other individuals from sending material through the post.’

After Grey was given a penalty of a two-year recognisance bond of $3,000, he said ‘bless you’ to Mr Potter and thanked ‘everyone who was empathetic to what I accept was poor judgement’.
