Woman threatens suicide outside LDS church house

LOGAN — A woman in her 30’s was safely taken into custody Saturday afternoon, after threatening to commit suicide outside an LDS Church in Providence.

Deputies were dispatched to the scene near 355 Canyon Rd., after the woman called 911 reporting she had a gun and was inside a white Pontiac Grand Am, parked in the church’s parking lot.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Peterson said the woman safely surrendered to deputies after they made contact with her, using a PA system. There were no injuries and no use of force was necessary.

Peterson said the woman was taken into custody without incident and transported to Logan Regional Hospital for evaluation.

Several people were inside the church at the time of the incident. They were asked to remain inside until the woman surrendered.
