Warren Man Indicted On 29 Charges Stealing From Customers

A former Warren County home dealer has been indicted on 29 criminal charges for allegedly stealing $300,000 from customers.

63- year-old Aubry Dale Davis owned Davis Homes. He allegedly accepted payments for mobile homes and never delivered a product in return on 10 instances.

Warren County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Aaron Roberts said 26 victims were impacted directly.

“Many people’s lives were affected by this case,” Roberts said. “There’s many people out of tens of thousands of dollars, and it disrupted a lot of people’s families. A lot of people’s life savings were lost because of what happened.”

In 14 of the cases, Davis allegedly delivered a purchased mobile home but never provided a title. The last two cases victims paid for utility connections, but the mobile homes came without water and electricity. Three additional indictments for financial exploitation of the elderly came due to the victims’ age.

“One family put up over $66,000 and there were several other families that put up over 50 or 40,” Roberts said. “Families had to live with other family members. A husband and wife had to live with their parents and the kids were separated. It’s really affected many many many different people because of this.”

Roberts said the stolen money went to a failed hemp business attempt by Davis. Roberts said Davis has not been arraigned yet.

Davis was booked into Warren County Jail on Saturday, posted $150,000 bond and was released later that day. Davis Homes is no longer in operation. It shut down in December after 33 years in business and the property has been sold.
