Youth Pastor Thomas Elliott arrested

ThomasElliott Baptist youth pastor Thomas Lee Elliott was arrested while trying to solicit a child for sex. Unfortunately, he was soliciting a cop posing as a 14-year-old girl.

Sluder said Elliott wanted to meet, and a rendezvous was arranged for a Greensboro parking lot Thursday. Elliott was arrested when he arrived, Sluder said.

Elliott, who Sluder said is a part-time youth minister at Autryville Baptist Church, is in the Guilford County Jail. Bail was set at $25,000. Elliott was to make his first appearance in court Friday afternoon.

Another week, another Baptist pastor busted for sexual crimes. 2010 has yielded a bumper crop of pedophile pastors.
