Pastor Arrested And Charged With 9 Counts Of Robbery In String Of Heists Suspected To Be Drug-Motivated

Thou shalt not steal.



A Charlotte, N.C. pastor put one of the 10 commandments on the backburner and was ultimately arrested Wednesday in connection to a number of armed robberies on local businesses.

John Thomas Lindsey, 47, a pastor at True Love Church of Refuge, was charged with 9 counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, 9 counts of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, wsoctv.com reports.

Lindsey allegedly robbed two 7-Eleven stores, a Family Dollar store, a Circle K and two Sam’s Marts.

He’s suspected to have fired a shot inside a Family Dollar store back in October.

Surveillance footage in the stores shows a person resembling Lindsey engaged in the robberies.





Amid the local media fallout of the crimes, True Love Church of Refuge released a statement reading: “We, the leadership and membership of True Love Church of Refuge, are deeply saddened and disappointed that our leader and brother, John Thomas Lindsey, is facing charges associated with criminal activity. Though we denounce any involvement he may have had, we love him and will continue to pray for him. The ministry will continue to stand strong despite the latest allegations and will continue to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom.”


Police zeroed in on Lindsey after being led to him by a 24-year-old man named Fernando Carillo-Hernandez, who was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and three counts of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, according to WSOC.

Carillo-Hernandez, who does not appear to be connected to True Love Church of Refuge, is allegedly responsible for robberies at Circle K locations. He also has a rap sheet that includes two drug-related convictions.
