Seneca bomb threat suspect charged in two Clemson cases



CLEMSON — A woman already facing bomb threat charges in Oconee County was charged last week in a pair of threats in Clemson late last month and early this month. Melissa Ann Griggs, 38, faces a total of 30 charges in a string of bomb threats, mostly in the city of Seneca.

Clemson University police charged Griggs Feb. 19 with two felony counts of making a bomb threat in connection with two incidents that resulted in the evacuation of the Hendrix Student Center on the school’s campus.

Police said the first incident occurred Jan. 30 when the building was evacuated by staff members after a woman caller said she overheard someone say the word “bomb.”

On Feb. 4, a female caller told the Hendrix information desk that there was a bomb in the building.

Police searched the building both times and found nothing.

Griggs is being held at the Oconee County Detention Center.
