There are things you just don’t do in this life and yet somebody did one of those things to Floyd Bey last week. They stole his saxophone.
As Floyd puts it, “When it comes to Harley Davidsons and women, if it ain't yours, don't touch it. Well, that pretty much applies to everything in life. If it ain't yours, don't touch it."
Genuine need is something Floyd understands. He says, “Someone needs something, needs a helping hand, I've been there for them."
But genuine need has nothing to do with this case. This was just theft. It happened last Thursday.
"It's a heart-sickening thing when someone breaks into your home when it is supposed to be your sanctuary."
Thieves ransacked Floyd's home, stealing two guitars, amps and his prized possession. “The saxophone is a silver sax, pearl and white keys, Buescher."
Bey said the police came out and investigated. He does have security video but he wasn’t recording at the time.
The career truck driver keeps the doors to his home open for those in need. He didn’t think that would come back to hurt him, especially with his plan for the instruments.
“I was putting together a gospel band to go out and do some evangelizing for the young kids,” he said. “It's all just kinda gone at this point."
