MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Alabama State University Department of Public Safety and Central Alabama CrimeStoppers asked for the public’s help identifying a campus theft and burglary suspect. They quickly got an answer via an anonymous tip.

On Thursday, three days after the request, the agencies confirmed the suspect in multiple crimes on ASU’s campus between May 4 and June 14 has been identified and arrested.

CrimeStoppers said the man is 46-year-old Kurtavious Karlinski Davis, of Montgomery. He was arrested by ASU investigators Wednesday.

Davis was charged with three counts of third-degree burglary, three counts of theft of property, and criminal mischief related to the ASU cases. But Davis is also accused of targeting other university campuses.

There’s a theft of property charge filed against him for allegedly stealing a golf cart from Huntingdon College on June 7, as well as failure to appear warrants from a 2016 theft and criminal mischief charges on Faulkner University’s campus.

The suspect is now being held at the Montgomery County Detention Facility on bonds totaling $7,500.
