Shortly after 8:00 a.m. this morning, troopers from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg responded to the Love’s Truck Stop in Memphis in reference to an alleged theft at the travel plaza.


State Police Arrest Man Twice For Theft

When troopers arrived they talked with the travel plaza employees and then with Joshua Cloyd, 21, from Gary, IN. Joshua Cloyd had allegedly stole women’s socks and cupcakes from the travel plaza. After Trooper John Cain investigated further he recognized the alleged thief as a man he arrested on April 7th of this year for an alleged theft of items at the Pilot Travel Plaza, also located in Memphis.

After talking with the arrested it was determined that Joshua Cloyd would get on a travel coach/bus in northern Indiana and travel the Interstate 65 corridor south on the bus. When the bus made stops for refueling, eating meals, etc. he would get off of the bus and allegedly steal items. When he got to a predetermined destination going south, he would then get off of the bus travelling south and then get on another bus travelling north. He would then use the same alleged method of stealing on the way back north to his home in Gary, IN.

Joshua Cloyd was arrested for Theft, D Felony, (Two Counts), and incarcerated at the Clark County Jail.
