Fugitive's criminal record dates back to childhood

He is a fugitive who authorities described as dangerous with no respect for anybody.

Davin Berry is wanted for aggravated robbery, and one of his victims says Berry became a criminal at a young age.

LinMarie Garsee told 12News that Berry targeted her when he was just 12 or 13 years old.

Garsee said Berry and two other boys vandalized one of her rental properties.  He was sent to juvenile detention and he would eventually end up in prison.

Garsee, who is a private investigator, kept tabs on Berry, while he was behind bars.  She even knew he had been let out in 2011.

Garsee was at peace knowing he was released in the Houston area, however on Wednesday she was shocked to learn he had returned to Beaumont.

Authorities said in October, Berry carjacked a man and stabbed him, and now Berry is a wanted man.

Jefferson County Deputy Rod Carroll said, "Criminals usually, when they get out of prison, return to the neighborhoods where they're from."

Carroll added, "This individual has no respect for anybody, society as a whole, he'll take what he wants and do what he wants."

Carroll says part of Berry's long criminal history includes assault on a peace officer.

Garsee has her guard up, but is not afraid.  She told us, "I don't ever want to hurt anybody, but I will protect myself, my home and my property."

Anybody with information on Berry's whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers at 409-833-TIPS (8477).
