The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) received a tip through the National Threat Operation Center that led agents to Davis’ location. On May 4, the FBI executed a federal search warrant on a room at the Tewa Lodge motel in Albuquerque, where Davis was found and taken into custody. During an interview with investigators, David admitted to robbing the bank and claimed that he had spent the money on a pistol and fentanyl pills, according to a news release from the Office of the United States Attorney for the District of New Mexico. Davis reportedly told agents he had been clean for seven or eight years but had recently started using again.
Upon his release from prison, Davis will undergo 3 years of supervised release when released from prison.
