LOS ANGELES -- The owner of the Detroit Pistons had a strange encounter and even stranger request over the weekend.

According to TMZ.com two men showed up on the doorstep of Detroit Pistons owner, Tom Gores, Sunday night around 10 p.m.

Gores lives in a gated community in L.A. and somehow the pair got through security and to Gores' front door demanding he accept a delivery.

The two eventually took off, but left the package for Gores, which contained a bunch of papers, including one demanding more than $1 million be given to the Mormon Church.

The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating, but don't have a motive.

A spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints told TMZ.com, "We haven't heard anything about this, but it certainly has nothing to do with us, and it sounds very bizarre."
