As parishioners attended Sunday services at Chapel by the Lake Church, Juneau Police were nearby arresting a man who is now charged with one count of terroristic threats in the second degree.

According to a news release, police responded at 8:41 a.m. to a report of a man making statements about having a gun and people owing him money. Thurman Lee Cairns Jr., 36, did not have a weapon but was arrested and taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center. Police say alcohol was not a factor.

Cairns faces a class C felony. JPD could not be reached Sunday for further details.
