Standoff Erupts When Mom Comes for Kids in Polygamous Town

April 09, 2015  | 

Police were forced to step in during a tense standoff in a polygamous community on the Utah-Arizona border when members of Warren Jeffs' sect blocked a former follower from taking her children, reports the Associated Press.

Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter said deputies were in Colorado City, Ariz., for seven hours Friday until they received a search warrant to enter the home of an aunt who refused to give the kids to their mother.

Nobody was hurt, but officials escorted Sabrina Tetzner and her four children across the Utah state line.
