Footprints in snow lead to burglary suspects

Kenneth Floyd, 46

Two northeast Missouri men are facing burglary charges after police tracked them down from footprints in the snow.

Richard Elder, 20, of Edina, and Kenneth Floyd, 46, of Moberly, are both charged with felony burglary, stealing and other counts following their arrest last week.

On March 4, thieves broke into an Edina home entering through a kitchen window. Several thousands of dollars in cash was taken.

Knox County Deputy Carl Knoche noticed two sets of footprints leading to another home on the same street. That's where he found the two suspects.

Officers say they found the stolen money there, some of it beneath a kitchen stove.

Elder and Floyd are both being held on $25,000 bond.
