On May 21, 2020, at approximately 7:15 am, the New York State Police arrested Troy M. Davis, age 33, of New York, NY.  Mr. Davis was arrested in New York City for crimes he committed in Hampton Bays, NY and Holtsville, NY, on February 28, 2020.  Mr. Davis was involved in a bail bond scam, where he advised the victims one of their family members had been arrested and required bail money for their release. Mr. Davis acted as a courier and intentionally deprived two elderly people out of money totaling $31,500.00.  Mr. Davis was processed for Grand Larceny 3rd and Scheme to Defraud 1st.  Mr. Davis was turned over to the Suffolk County Police Department, to be processed on the same charges and held for arraignment.  This was a joint investigation between the New York State Police and the Suffolk County Police Department, which highlights the partnership of two agencies working together, in order to get a predator like this off the streets.
