Several people have paid Davis Homes for mobile homes they have never received, according to an investigation revealed Friday by the Warren County Sheriff ’s Department.
Law enforcement officials are now asking other potential victims to come forward if they think they have been the victim of a financial crime at the hands of Davis Homes, which is located on Smithville Highway.
“Multiple victims were found to have paid large sums of money to Davis Homes being promised to receive their homes from the business, but the victims did not receive anything,” said a report posted to the Sheriff’s Department Facebook page. “It was discovered that some victims were paying deposits while being approved for financing, and did not get the deposit refunded when they were not approved for credit. In addition to the victims that paid money to Davis Homes and received nothing, more individuals were identified of being victims of financial crimes by never receiving titles to their homes purchased through Davis Homes.”
When asked for a comment, attorney Scott Horton, who represents Davis Homes, said he is not going to comment on an investigation when no charges have been filed. Horton added he is confident everything will be resolved.
The Sheriff’s Department launched the criminal investigation in August for financial crimes allegedly committed by Davis Homes at the request of the 31st Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
“Victims in this case came from all over the Midstate of Tennessee, ranging from the northern county of Sumner County to the southern county of Franklin County,” the Sheriff’s Department said.
