Cookie Monster?

A South Carolina man has been charged with stealing 450 cases of Girl Scout cookies from a Spartanburg warehouse. Christopher Maurice Morton is being charged with breach of trust more than $10,000 after Greenville County deputies found 352 cases of Thin Mints and Shortbreads along with Morton behind an abandoned business.

Priddy returned the ID and told the customer she would be right back with her drinks. But instead, she went straight to the back room and called the cops, who apprehended the suspect and charged her with identity theft and criminal impersonation charges. Ahhhhh karma, you work in strange ways. More

Grove Studios Update

Local musician Rick Coughlin founded Grove Studios in late 2016 with the goal of establishing it as a community space for musicians—by musicians! The Grove team’s idea, with an architectural vision of Breck Crandell, was for a compound of individual artists’ rehearsal spaces comprised of a fleet of shipping containers.
