An incredible story is making headlines around the country today. A pastor is being credited with stopping a robbery that was taking place at his church!

However, the way the pastor took action is what's making the news. He held the thief at gunpoint until the police arrived!

"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," wrote Fox.

"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 were on the scene moments later. They charged the man with burglary, grand theft, and drug possession. Officials believe he was trying to steal cash from inside the church.

"There are 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."
