It makes for a rather fantastical tale — Indiana Pastor Carl Sanders walked into a Dollar General store to purchase Gatorade and found himself in the middle of a heist.
The store seemed unusually quiet Friday night, Sanders told NBC local news affiliate WFIE. The Covenant Life Ministries preacher entered to witness a man in a bandana ordering the store clerk to hand over cash.
The robber, later identified as 25-year-old Jermaine Dewayne Marshall, turned to Sanders with his hand wrapped in plastic. The concealed object was found to be only a spoon, however at the time, it was impossible to judge.
