The FBI, along with the Centralia Police Department are involved in investigating some threats made against a church last month.
According to reports from the Centralia Fireside Guard a report was made by an employee of a Columbia hospital that a patient was making threats against Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Centralia.
According to the Guard Father James Offutt, the pastor of the church informed police a note had been left at the church demanding a half a million dollars or else various threats would be carried out.
The church canceled all activities and services for a week.
