On May 9, 2024, the Arlington County Police Department arrested 59-year-old Marvin Davis for indecent exposure, burglary, and grand larceny following an incident on North Hartford Street. Davis, who has no fixed address, was initially detained by officers responding to a reported indecent exposure at approximately 7:45 a.m. However, he was released due to lack of evidence at the time.

Why this matters: This incident highlights the importance of thorough investigations and collaboration between law enforcement agencies, demonstrating how diligence and persistence can lead to the apprehension of wanted individuals and the recovery of stolen property. Moreover, it underscores the need for effective communication and information sharing between agencies to ensure public safety and prevent further crimes.

Further investigation revealed that Davis was wanted by the US Marshal's Service. This led officers to conduct a second search for Davis, locating him in the 3100 block of Clarendon Boulevard. Upon his arrest, Davis was found to be in possession of a stolen bicycle, allegedly taken from a home on North Hartford Street.

Davis now faces charges of burglary and grand larceny in addition to the initial indecent exposure charge. He was scheduled to make his first appearance in Arlington County General District Court on Friday, May 10, 2024.
