Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A late night trip to the Denver Walmart on March 24, 2019 led to the arrest of a Fort Mill, South Carolina Man and a Southport, North Carolina man.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Charlie District deputies responded to Walmart around 3 a.m. after employees reported a suspicious person possibly stealing items from the store.
Deputies were able to stop a white sedan in the parking area occupied by two men believed to have been involved.

Deputies got the passenger, Brian Christopher Jamieson, 37, of Southport, N.C. out of the car and when he moved from the seat a pair of wire cutters fell to the ground. He was handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol car. Officers then got the driver, Griffin Landret Morris, 30, of Fort Mill, S.C., out of the vehicle and noticed a pair of brass knuckles partially hidden in the side door pocket. Officers found a packet of crystal meth in his pocket during a search. Deputies were also notified that Morris had two outstanding warrants out of Mecklenburg County and York, S.C.

A search of the vehicle turned up a fish finder and fishing reel in a container in the trunk of the car. The items, valued at $422, were identified as stolen from the Denver Walmart. Also in the container was a black box with multiple U.S. currency notes that were visibly counterfeit. Both wallets of Jamieson and Morris were searched and more counterfeit currency was found. Deputies seized thirteen $50 currency notes and five $20 currency notes from the individuals.

Jamieson was charged with two counts of conspiracy, and one count each of counterfeiting, removing or tampering with product device, misdemeanor larceny, and possession of stolen goods. He was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $40,000 secured bond.

Morris is charged with possession of five or more counterfeit instruments, possession of a controlled substance schedule II, two counts of misdemeanor larceny, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of controlled substance schedule III, failure to appear, forgery of bank notes and two counts of conspiracy. He is in jail under a 473,500 secured bond and a no hold bond on a fugitive from justice warrant on the forgery charge from York, South Carolina.

Both men had a first appearance in Lincoln County District Court today. (March 25, 2019)
