NOLA reports that Slidell (LA) Police got a tip that John Davis, 56, may have been involved in a Jan. 26 burglary of a home in the city. But it was the GPS-equipped ankle monitor he was wearing that sealed his fate, authorities said Monday.
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.

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