According to information provided by the Clay County Sheriff's Department, Michael Keith Floyd, 19, Coal City, was taken into custody on an arrest warrant for class C felony burglary and class D felony theft charges and booked into the Clay County Justice Center on a $10,000 cash bond, with no 10 percent allowed.
Between July 1 and Aug. 2, the Clay City Youth League was broken into several times, but nothing was reported stolen. However, when the manager returned from vacation and inventoried the concession stand on Aug. 6, a microwave and various food items were reported missing.
Meanwhile, deputies were questioning two suspects in connection to a residential burglary investigation from Aug. 2, when they discovered Floyd and accomplice Ryan Michael Grafe, 20, Clay City, were involved with the CCYL burglary.
A search warrant was obtained using their admissions and subsequent information about the location of stolen property from the two burglaries, and a potential third.
On Sept. 15, Grafe appeared before Superior Court Judge Blaine Akers on charges of class C felony burglary and class D felony theft charges for his alleged involvement in the burglary at the concession stand.
On Aug. 5, the two men appeared in separate courts for their alleged involvement in a separate burglary in the Clay City area.
Both men were formally charged with class B felony burglary, class D felony theft and four class A misdemeanor charges, including criminal trespass, criminal mischief, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
Both men requested to speak with counsel and a public defender was assigned to each case as informal pleas of not guilty were entered for Floyd and Grafe. Floyd's jury trial was tentatively scheduled for Jan. 10, 2010, while Grafe's was scheduled for Jan. 4.
While both Floyd and Grafe's bonds were initially set for $25,000 (with no 10 percent allowed), Floyd's was later reduced to $10,000 (with 10 percent allowed). Floyd was out on bond awaiting further court proceedings at the time of his recent arrest.
However, jail officials confirmed Monday that both Floyd and Grafe are currently incarcerated at the Clay County Justice Center awaiting further court proceedings.
