A security officer at MorningStar Ministries reported a “terrible” threat earlier this week.
On May 20, Officer Corey Portello gave sheriff’s deputies an email that the ministry had received.
The email, from a man with the last name Griggs, consisted of “several Biblical slurs, comments regarding shootings, lots of profanity and several other terrible things,” a report says.
Officer Portello asked the York County Sheriff’s Office to document the threat.

Drunk Man Arrested After 5-Hour Nap Behind Auto Shop: York County authorities arrested a drunk man who took a five-hour nap in his truck behind Brother’s Auto Tech on Regent Parkway in Fort Mill.
The man, identified by the name 24-year-old Duop Duop (his real name), was charged with intoxicated in public. He has a listed residence of Waxhaw, N.C.
The business called authorities about the suspicious man. An employee said the suspect had arrived around noon on May 20 looking to get an oil change on his truck, but they weren’t available to do it then. Employees later saw his vehicle behind the shop and called the sheriff’s office.
Deputies found the man sleeping in the cab of a Ford F150. He reeked of alcohol and looked dazed when deputies woke him up, a report says. He thought he had only been sleeping for 45 minutes. But it was 5:23 p.m. when deputies found him.
Fort Mill Man Found Lying in Street: On May 19, deputies arrested a man for public disorderly conduct after he was found laying unconscious with half of his body in the street on Heritage Boulevard in Fort Mill.
According to a sheriff’s report, James Tumblson of Fort Mill was “laying in the grass with half of his body in the roadway.” He appeared to be sleeping or passed out from being intoxicated, the report says.
The man was close to his apartment when officers found him that way at 5:30 in the morning. He said he had consumed several alcoholic beverages, which was apparent with his slurred speech.
He was arrested for being grossly intoxicated in public, and he “appeared to pass out from the intoxication on the way to detention,” the report says.
Lexus Stolen from Driveway on Sycamore Street: On May 21, a local resident of Sycamore Court reported the theft of his 2012 Lexus from his driveway.
The victim said his vehicle was unlocked overnight but there was no key inside the car when it was taken. It appeared the thief drove it around a Toyota Tacoma that was parked behind it and struck the truck while driving through the front yard, a sheriff’s report says.
A neighbor recorded video of the theft, showing what appear to be “two black males wearing large gloves, dark pants, shoes, a hoodie and a hat.” One of the suspects was recorded in another driveway pulling on door handles, the report says.
