Warr Acres Man Who Often Plays Santa Arrested for Lewd Act Proposals to Child

An undercover Internet Crimes Against Children investigation using the Craigslist website nets a Warr Acres man often paid by metro schools to play Santa. July 11, 2013, an OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force member from the Guthrie Police Department along with a Logan County Sheriff’s deputy arrested Wiley Gene Davis, Jr. (d.o.b. 9/5/1963). Davis responded to a Craigslist advertisement he believed was posted by a 15-year-old girl. Davis made numerous sexual and lewd proposals and even referred to himself as “Santa”. At approximately 7:30 Thursday evening Davis arrived at a convenience store in the area of Coltrane and Waterloo to meet this 15-year-old girl. Once Davis exited his vehicle, undercover agents noticed Davis was wearing a loaded pistol and a private investigator badge. He was immediately arrested for lewd acts proposals to a child under 16, violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act, and possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony. He was booked into the Logan County Jail. Davis is also a co-ed baseball coach for kids 6 years and younger in the Oklahoma City metro area.
