Armed Citizen Stops Robbery At Tennessee Hotel

posted on November 22, 2016

A career criminal in the process of robbing two people at a Chattanooga Days Inn suddenly discovered one of his targets was armed—and ready to act in self-defense. 

Last Friday evening, Delane C. Price and an accomplice approached a couple in a breezeway just outside a hotel room, demanding cash and valuables. That’s when one of the victims, 59-year old Stan Lindsey, drew his concealed firearm and shot the would-be robber and his partner in crime. 

Investigators say Price, who has a long criminal record including multiple theft charges and public intoxication, was struck and sustained fatal injuries. Lindsey detained Price’s accomplice until law enforcement could arrive. Police Sgt. Victor Miller said it wasn’t immediately clear whether the armed citizen or the attackers were staying on the premises, telling WRCB-TV, “We are currently investigating the possibility that one of the persons involved was a renter of a hotel room here, but we have not confirmed that information.”
