Giles man arrested for allegedly stealing from Virginia Tech

Posted: Updated:
Virginia Tech Police has arrested and charged a university employee on eight counts of larceny.  

Floyd Raye Hoston, age 23, of Pembroke, Va., was arrested and charged with seven counts of petit larceny and one count of grand larceny. Hoston worked in housekeeping at Virginia Tech. He was arrested without incident and was transported to the Montgomery County Jail where he is currently being held without bond.

The arrest was the result of an investigation by the department’s investigative division. The larcenies, which involved money ranging from $25 to more than $300, occurred in Owens and War Memorial halls beginning in September 2013.

“Our investigation, which led to today’s arrest, is a message that we take such behavior seriously and will bring those responsible to justice,” said Maj. Kevin Foust, interim chief of police. “This case is also a reminder to the Virginia Tech community about the importance of securing your personal items.”
