Florida pastor stops burglar at church, holds him at gunpoint until cops arrive
Police arrived a few minutes later and took Otero-Rivera, who had left a trail of blood through the church after breaking the window, into custody, FOX 13 reported. He was charged with burglary, grand theft, and drug possession.
Chruch leaders think he was trying to steal cash.
Adams said there’s no need for people who are struggling to steal from anyone.
“There’s so many things that we try to do to help people,” he said. “If he would’ve just come to the back door and knocked and asked for something, said, ‘I need some food.’ We would’ve given him some food.”
Nobody was hurt in the burglary, although there is some significant damage to doors and windows in the church, according to FOX 13.
