His charges come after Trousdale Church of Christ on Old Shelbyville Road was burglarized.“We recovered photographic evidence of vehicle tire tracks and footprints in the mud near the building,” revealed sheriff’s investigator Aaron Roberts, noting a short time later members of the church contacted him to reveal they had seen some of the stolen items, specifically a pair of waders, on Facebook Marketplace.Roberts tracked down the man who placed the ad who, in turn, pointed to Floyd as the man who had him put the ad on Facebook. “He posted it for Mr. Floyd because Mr. Floyd did not know how,” Roberts noted, adding the man who posted the ad for the suspect then showed the investigator plumbing items Floyd had given to him, items that were part of the loot from the church burglary.
