Joseph Davis stole his girlfriend’s jewelry to propose to another woman.
Earlier this year, a woman from Orange City, Florida found out that her 48-year-old boyfriend Joseph Davis was engaged to somebody else. Moreover, she was shocked and frightened when she looked up his fiancée’s Facebook page and saw that the woman was wearing her wedding band and engagement ring. Realizing that Davis had stolen her jewelry to propose to somebody else, the woman went to check if her boyfriend had stolen anything else. In addition to these rings, she found that he had taken several other pieces of jewelry, including a diamond ring that belonged to her grandmother, AP reported. The sheriff’s office told the press that the stolen jewelry was worth $6,270 in total. Now, Volusion County Sheriff’s deputies have issued an arrest warrant for Joseph Davis.
The woman reached out to Davis’ fiancée to warn her.
Upon finding out what Davis had done, his fiancée called off the engagement. What is more, she told detectives that she too had been tricked and duped. AP further reported that Davis had once taken his fiancée to the house that belonged to the Orange City woman and claimed that it was his. In addition to this, he had asked her to move in with him. Before moving in, however, he had disappeared with her laptop and jewelry. At the time, both women did not know his real name although one recalled that the man had a relative in North Carolina. It was thanks to this relative that detectives were able to identify Joseph Davis.
According to AP, Davis currently has an active arrest warrant for a hit-and-run with injuries in Oregon. The man has also previously been arrested for “possession of fictitious ID, filing a false police report, domestic assault and possession of cocaine with intent to sell.”
