SMYRNA, Tenn.- A Smyrna
pastor caught on tape trying to burglarize a church member's home, won't spend
any time behind bars.
In 2011, a church member
recorded video in her kitchen with a hidden camera. Police say it shows Rickey
Reed's unsuccessful attempt to get inside the home. Detectives say the pastor
did break in several times before and stole Lortabs.
A judge sentenced Rickey
Alan Reed, 55, to four years diversion. Instead of serving jail time, he will
either perform community service, make restitution for damage caused by the
crime, or some other punishment.
Reed is now a part-time
pastor at Living Faith Ministries and a pizza delivery man.
