JACKSON — Troopers arrested an East Feliciana Parish sheriff’s deputy and his wife Tuesday and accused the couple of stealing a computer taken during a traffic arrest in March 2011, a State Police spokesman said.
Deputy Sidney Floyd, 43, and his wife, Adina, 38, a Jackson town deputy marshal, were booked into East Feliciana Parish Prison on one count each of theft, illegal possession of stolen things and malfeasance in office, Trooper First Class Russell Graham said in a news release.
Jackson Town Marshal Fred Allen asked State Police to investigate an allegation that a computer and other property were stolen during a traffic stop on March 19, 2011, Graham said.
Allen recently told troopers that new information regarding the case had come to light, which led State Police detectives to search the Floyds’ home, Graham said.
Detectives found the stolen computer at their home, Graham said.
Detectives determined that the Floyds were on the scene of the March 2011 traffic stop and were
supposed to inventory
the vehicle’s contents before a wrecker arrived to impound the vehicle, Graham said.
The Jackson Marshal’s Office and the East Feliciana Sheriff’s Department assisted with the investigation, Graham said.
