SAVANNAH, GA (September 24, 2013): A tip from the public has helped Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police coordinate with New York City police to arrest a Savannah man wanted on theft and deception charges.

Daniel Emanuel Alvin, 46, was arrested on a Savannah warrant charging him with first degree felony forgery at a homeless shelter in New York on Monday. The process is underway to have him extradited back to Georgia.

The charges stem from a fraudulent non-profit organization he operated in Savannah. He was considered armed and dangerous by Metro police.
