Latoca Davis was sentenced to four years in prison after she was found guilty in July of felony stealing. She admitted to robbing a bank on North Kingshighway in December 2018. She previously pleaded guilty to stealing an investigator's pistol while filing a complaint against police with the Civilian Oversight Board. She also pleaded guilty to drug possession.

The bundle included GPS devices, which helped police track a home where she was staying in the 4300 block of Dryden Court, charges said. 

Last year, Davis received three years of probation after pleading guilty to stealing and drug possession. Police found fentanyl in her car during a December 2017 traffic stop. She also admitted stealing a Sig Sauer semiautomatic pistol from a bag in an investigator’s office at 1520 Market Street.
