Pistol-packing Indiana pastor turns tables on robber, holds him for police 'out of love'

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Police say a pistol-packing pastor turned the tables on an Evansville robber.

Pastor Carl Sanders of Covenant Life Ministry in Evansville stopped in a discount store Friday to buy a drink and was confronted by 25-year-old Jermaine Marshall of Evansville holding what appeared to be a gun wrapped in plastic.

Sanders tells WFIE-TV that Marshall told him to get on the ground, but the pastor says he pulled his gun on Marshall and told him, “No, you get on the ground.” Marshall’s weapon was just a spoon.

Sanders held Marshall until officers arrived. He told Marshall he was doing so “out of love.”

Marshall was being held without bond on robbery charges today at the Vanderburgh County Detention Center. Online jail records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
