Home Invasion in Floyd County

Paintsville, KY, USA / WSIP FM 98.9 | New Country

Deputies in Floyd County are searching for a suspect in a home invasion.

It happened at a home on Dotson Branch of Watergap earlier this week.

In a social media post, the sheriff’s department says someone broke the glass out of a back door of the home.

No one was home at the time of the crime.

The suspect’s vehicle was reportedly hauling a large hotdog grilling machine, which we now know was stolen from another nearby residence.

The sheriff’s department reports the vehicle¬†apparently got stuck in the wet soft yard, forcing the suspect(s) to have to detach the grill machine and leave it behind at the residence.

The owner of the machine has been notified thanks to the public’s help.

Deputies are still needing help identifying who is behind the crime.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department at 606-886-6171 or their anonymous tip line, 606-949-2020.
