According to police, Davis presented a note to the teller demanding cash and a vehicle. When the teller refused to comply, police say Davis exited the bank, removed his mask and fled on foot.


Davis was arrested following a comprehensive investigation which included the Michigan State Police and the Western-Wayne Community Response Team, a multi-jurisdictional task force that provides resources to participating agencies working large cases.

If convicted as charged, Davis could be sentenced to any number of years in prison up to life.
