The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says officials requested that the United States Marshal’s Service Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force adopt a case regarding active arrest warrants for Phillippe Grant Davison, 38, of Cypress. On Wednesday, February 19 task force officers received information that he was hiding in abandoned structures near his home.

Then, by Thursday, February 20, authorities had begun to relentlessly pursue Davison as he continued to evade capture. He later turned himself in shortly after midnight on Friday, February 21.

Davison is charged with lewd or lascivious exhibition on a child and lewd or lascivious conduct on a child.
