Ronald Wayne Stribble, resigns after prostitution charge

A Lindale pastor has resigned after being arrested on a prostitution charge.

Ronald Wayne Stribble, 66, of Lindale, was arrested Jan. 6 and booked into Smith County Jail. He was later released on $500 bond.
Tyler Police spokesperson Don Martin says Stribble had been communicating with a woman on social media earlier in the week and agreed to meet her at the LaQuinta Inn on Loop 323 in Tyler. Police were tipped off about the meeting by an anonymous source and sent an undercover officer to meet with the pastor on Wednesday.

Martin says Stribble gave the undercover officer enough information to have him arrested at the scene for soliciting prostitution.

Stribble is a senior adult pastor with First Baptist Church of Lindale. According to the church's website, Stribble has been affiliated with the church since 1990 and has served as the music pastor for 20 years.
