COLORADO CITY — Continuing his rule behind bars, Fundamentalist LDS Church leader Warren Jeffs has told his congregation to prepare for the end of the world before the end of the year.

According to CNN reporter Gary Tuchman, polygamist sect leader Jeffs has declared that the world will end before 2013.

Though church members continue to work, Colorado City's only grocery store — a gathering place for the town as well — has closed its doors. Sam Brower, a private investigator who has represented more than 100 former FLDS Church members, told CNN that the closure of the store is a confirmation that Jeffs' declaration is being taken seriously.

Believers do not talk to reporters and nobody was willing to comment on the declaration. CNN reported that some FLDS members even used intimidation techniques involving driving large trucks by their cameras.
