A Price man was taken into custody on Sunday after he allegedly threatened to kill people at a local church he sometimes attends.
The 32-year-old man was booked into the Carbon County Jail for investigation of making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct.
According to the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office, the pastor at the Liberty Faith Fellowship Church at 1630 N. 1550 West in Price reported that he was very concerned about Facebook audio messages the man left Sunday morning. The messages “imply that [the man] is going to kill a bunch of people” at the church, which he attends on an “infrequent basis,” the office said. Four church members were mentioned by name, and the man implied “he is going to kill two of them.”
Church services were delayed on Sunday morning, and the pastor had an assistant watch the door, but the man did not appear. Police later located him, and he “implied that the messages were song lyrics. However, the messages never implied that they were.”
