John Davis might be considered the Forrest Gump of Slidell. It was Gump who suggested in the movie that was named after him, " I am not a smart man". I don't know Mr. Davis but I think he would qualify to fall under that same description.

Authorities in Slidell received a tip that Davis could have been involved in a home burglary in that southeast Louisiana community in late January. The ankle monitor that Mr. Davis wears proved to be a very compelling witness in the case. That monitor was placed on Mr. Davis by a bail bondsman in New Orleans. That was after Davis was arrested in New Orleans.

The GPS tracking device contained in the monitor accurately place Davis at the scene of the crime at the time the crime was committed. State Police booked Davis in New Orleans with possession of stolen property. He will later be booked with a burglary charge in Slidell
