The Rockwall Herald-Banner is reporting a Rockwall County jury on Tuesday convicted a Dallas man on felony theft of property less than $2,500 charges with two or more previous theft-related convictions.

Larry Lee Davis, 61, was sentenced by Rockwall County District Judge David E. Rakow to 10 years in prison.

According to a statement issued by the Rockwall County District Attorney’s Office, jurors heard testimony that on June 29, 2022, Davis went to the Four Brothers Outdoor Power business in Royse City and purchased four leaf blowers with a check.  Several days later, American National Bank contacted Four Brothers to inform them the check was fraudulent and drawn on a fictitious account.

The store contacted Davis but he failed to return the property or pay for the items. Royse City Police Department officer Walter Wawra and Det. Steve Tigert testified regarding their investigation and the events that led to the arrest of Davis.

Prosecutors also presented evidence that Davis had been previously convicted of the federal offense of equity skimming, organized criminal activity and nearly 30 separate offenses of theft and fraud dating back to the mid-1980s.

“The jury sent a strong message that stealing from businesses – whether large or small – will not be tolerated in Rockwall County,” said assistant district attorney Julien Tagnon.
