Truck Driver Who Turned-in the DC Snipers Had Prayed They Would be CaughtTruth!



Summary of eRumor:

Truck Driver Ron Lantz, according to the eRumor, was among 50 other drivers who had met to pray that the Washington DC snipers would be caught.  A week later, Lantz turned out to be the one who spotted their car at a rest stop in Maryland and reported them to police.

The Truth:

According to numerous published sources, including the Washington Times, this is true.  Trucker Ron Lantz is from Ludlow, Kentucky.  He says he heard the description of the suspects’ car on a national truckers radio program called the Truckin’ Bozo.  Then when he pulled into a Maryland rest stop, he spotted the Chevrolet Caprice in which the two suspects were sleeping.  He called police and even positioned his truck to block the Caprice if the men awakened and tried to get away.  This all happened just two days before his scheduled retirement.  He and other Christian truckers had gotten together the previous week to pray that the sniper would be caught.
