CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man with a lengthy criminal history, including a previous conviction for reckless homicide, is back behind bars after reportedly breaking into a Clarksville church over the weekend.

Officers with the Clarksville Police Department received a 911 call around 4:10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 12, after a person was reportedly spotted on video camera breaking into Liberty Church at 613 East Street.

When police arrived at the church, they found 50-year-old Talamentes Tolbert in the wood line, and after a short foot pursuit, took him into custody. Tolbert is now facing charges for burglary, vandalism and evading arrest.

However, his criminal history dates back to November 1997, when he entered a no-contest plea for aggravated robbery and was sentenced to eight years in the Tennessee Department of Corrections.

Tolbert was arrested again nearly 12 years later, and in October 2009 took a best interest plea resulting in a conviction for reckless homicide. According to Clarksville police, he was given credit for the 865 days he had already served awaiting trial.

His bond has been set at $15,000.
