Pistol-packing pastor to robber: ‘No, you get on the ground’

[sharenow]

A cleric packing a concealed weapon confounded a craven crime at an Indiana Dollar Store Friday night, proving once again that the Lord helps those who help themselves.

Pastor Carl Sanders walked into the Evansville store to pick up a bargain or two, not to become a hero. But when he saw a would-be robber beating a terrified clerk with what the perpetrator claimed was a handgun, the man of God sprang into action, according to NBC.

“He was telling me to get on the ground,” Sanders told NBC affiliate WFIE. “That’s when I pulled my weapon and [said], ‘No, you get on the ground.'”

Sanders held his weapon on the man, later identified as Jermaine Dewayne Marshall, and calmly called the police.

“I laid my life down for some people,” Sanders said. “I wasn’t going to hurt [Marshall], but I wanted him to know you can’t do that.”

The police arrested Marshall, who, it turns out, was armed with a spoon wrapped in plastic.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.
