After receiving the tip, detectives began looking at Davis, of New Orleans, as a possible suspect in the burglary, in which jewelry, electronics and firearms were stolen, Slidell police said in a news release. Investigators then learned Davis had recently been arrested in New Orleans and was required to wear a monitoring device on his ankle as part of an agreement with a bail bondsman, the release said.

Detectives reviewed GPS data from the ankle monitor, which revealed Davis was at and inside the home in Hermadel Estates between 1 and 1:16 p.m. Jan. 26 before returning to New Orleans, police said.

Armed with that information, Slidell detectives and state troopers traveled to New Orleans and arrested Davis.
