Davie Man Caught in Stolen Car Bought With Fake ID

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, a Davie man was pulled over after being seen driving a 2019 Mercedes Benz that had been reported stolen and had additional items that did not belong to him.

Apparently, a deputy followed Davante Davis, 28, from Fort Lauderdale to Dania Beach, where he was stopped for driving about nine in the morning on September 15.

The Mercedes CLA250 was said to have been stolen from a Pompano Beach car dealership, where Davis attempted to purchase the almost $40,000 vehicle on August 26 by using another person’s name as a co-signer.

He paid a $5,800 down payment with a stolen credit card before driving off, but the transaction was later reversed and returned to the dealer, according to the report.

Davis was found to be in possession of a false Pennsylvania driver’s license and a fraudulent debit card during the traffic encounter. According to the deputy, he said that the fake driver’s license was intended for “getting into a club.”

Grand theft auto, possession of a fake ID or debit card, and other offenses led to Davis’ arrest.

Additionally, records revealed that Davis was wanted for a number of offenses, including grand theft, trafficking in stolen goods, and providing false information to a pawn broker in St. Lucie County.

Prior to his transfer to St. Lucie County, Davis was lodged in the Broward County Jail on $76,000 in bonds.
