Man jailed for threats to St. Charles church
ST. CHARLES, Mo. -- A St. Louis County man is jailed for allegedly threatening violence at a church.
The pastor of the Matthias Lot Church in St. Charles told police that someone on Sunday night left three voice-mail messages threatening violence. The church message recording device captured the phone number of the caller, leading police to 26-year-old Derek Ficik of Maryland Heights.
Ficik was charged Tuesday with two counts of making a terroristic threat. He is jailed on $50,000 cash-only bond.
Police said a motive has not been determined. Ficik had attended services at the church on Dec. 12 but is not a member.
