A suspect was taken into custody after he allegedly burglarized a building at Cross Point Church.

The incident was reported at Cross Point's Dream Center on Delaware Avenue.

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, an extra officer on duty at the location noticed the building had been broken into and that several items had been taken.

He quickly reviewed surveillance video and saw the suspect, now identified as Ruben Johnson, entering the building through a window around 11:15 a.m. Saturday.

The video allegedly shows Johnson running around in the church and kicking in an office door.

Shortly after, officers said they noticed the suspect walking down 42nd Avenue near Delaware Avenue carrying a keyboard and walking a bicycle.

Officers approached Johnson who admitted he was going to take the church's keyboard to a pawn shop. He was arrested for burglary on the spot.

His photo was not yet available.
