It hasn't been a good last few days for one Ruston, Louisiana pastor as he was arrested on Thursday night in Shreveport after allegedly exposing himself to an undercover officer in a public restroom at the Stoner Boat Launch.

Oh, and it gets worse.

Booking records at the Shreveport city jail show that 63-year-old Kenneth Sapp of Arcadia was also found in possession of 30 grams of suspected marijuana, 21 grams of suspected meth, multiple glass pipes, and an unlabeled bottle of pills.

Sapp, who is pastor of the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church just south of Ruston in Jackson Parish, was busted during an undercover operation to deal with an ongoing problem in the area.

He was booked on charges of:

  • Obscenity
  • Possession of marijuana with intent to distribute
  • Possession of methamphetamine
  • Possession of a firearm during a controlled substance felony
  • Possession of a legend drug
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Open container

His bond was set at $21,000.
