Grand Strand Crime

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Police arrested a Myrtle Beach man Tuesday afternoon who was wanted for various theft and fraud charges.

Jeffery Luvern Davis, Sr., 50, of Myrtle Beach, was wanted last month for possession of stolen property, mail theft, financial transaction fraud, and possession and distribution of fentanyl, according to police. Davis was believed to be in the Myrtle Beach area using false names to check into area hotels.

Davis was found with stolen property and mail from Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Socastee, Surfside Beach, and Conway, along with multiple IDs, checks, and credit cards, police said.

Davis was charged with criminal conspiracy, financial transaction card theft, larceny, and various drug charges.

In April 2020, Davis was arrested and accused of being the leader of a theft ring. Officials said he recruited and instructed people to burglarize, steal, and fraudulently obtain goods from places in Myrtle Beach so he could sell them.

He was released from jail on those charges and then arrested again in May 2020 on a drug manufacturing charge and was again released on bond.
