Lead Pastor Brant Adams of Seminole Heights Baptist Church responded to an alarm going off at the church just past 1 a.m. Adams, who lives nearby, arrived along with a deacon and found the suspect, Miguel Otero-Rivera, rifling through several church offices after breaking in a window, according to FOX 13.
“I didn’t know what he had in his hand, so I pulled the gun through the window,” Adams said. “I took the gun, pointed it at him, and told him to get down. I yelled at him and said, ‘Hey, get down!’ He put his hands up, went to the ground.”
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.
