— A registered sex offender jailed for being on school grounds in Alamance County saw his bond increased after investigators found he had visited other schools within the past month.

Stacy Lamont Davis, 34, of 521 10th St. in Gibsonville, was arrested Monday by Burlington police. They said he went to Hillcrest Elementary School Nov. 2 with an acquaintance to have lunch with the friend's child. He was charged with being a sex offender on school grounds, and his bond was set at $125,000.

Further investigation showed Davis spent time at Williams High School and Sellars Gunn School on that same day. As a result, his bond was increased to $325,000.

The N.C. Sex Offender Registry shows that Davis was convicted in 2009 of soliciting for indecent liberties with a minor and failure to register as a sex offender and in 1999 of two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor. He has been labeled a recidivist and must remain registered as a sex offender for life.

State Department of Correction records show that Davis has been nearly 20 convictions and has spent nearly 8½ years of the past 16 years behind bars. His convictions include accessory after the fact of first-degree murder, seling drugs, carrying a concealed weapon and assault on a female.
