A Rocky Mount Police officer was found not guilty Thursday in Floyd County General District Court of two game law violations and one count of trespassing, according to court records.
Craig C. Sloan of Ferrum was found not guilty of trespassing on posted property, not guilty of attempt to take a deer from a vehicle and not guilty of conspire to kill a deer illegally.
A former Rocky Mount Police officer, Christopher Williams, was also found not guilty of the same three charges.
Sloan and Williams were each charged with the three misdemeanor counts by a Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries conservation officer after a landowner in Floyd County called the conservation officer about an unauthorized vehicle being on his property, according to court records.
