Nikodemus Fleck in Soviet Prison because ???

Nikodemus Fleck in Soviet Prison because ???

In completing EWZ information regarding his imprisonment in Soviet Russia, Nikodemus Fleck answered in German: “1933-34 im Gefängnis gewesen, wegen Reich[?]” With help from Google’s translator I think this is “1933-34 was in prison because of Reich[?]” in English.
The attachment shows the complete EWZ entry. Can anyone tell me what the last two words of Nikodemus’ cursive entry might be. Also a better translation to English is welcome.

I think the word is Reichtums which = wealth. So he was imprisoned because of his wealth.

Thanks for your help. Knowing some of the family history, your answer “imprisoned because of his wealth” makes sense. When I now look at the word in question, I can see the letters/word you detected quite clearly.
