If I had to have a pastor, I guess it would be James Kilgore.
One of his parishioners left Bible study to find that his car was missing. (The irony of this did not cross anyone’s mind, apparently.)
Kilgore, who “always keeps a gun and handcuffs in his fanny pack,” took action. He and another churchgoer tracked down the car thief a few blocks away:
The pastor followed the driver until he crashed, tackled him as he crawled out of the car and then handcuffed him until police arrived on the scene.
And, of course, he thanks his law enforcement training for giving him the skills needed to apprehend the criminal…I’m just kidding. It was all God:
Kilgore said he was glad to put his law enforcement training to use, but said it was likely God had a role in helping him restrain the suspect.
