The owner of Davis Homes was indicted on 29 criminal charges at the beginning of this year for reportedly stealing roughly $300,000 from his customers and never delivering anything in return.  

Former owner of Davis Homes, Aubrey Dale Davis, was indicted by the Warren County grand jury in January on 26 theft of property charges and three charges of financial exploitation of an elderly or vulnerable adult. He was booked into the jail and posted $150,000 bond and later released the same day. 

The criminal allegations against Davis extend back to November 2017 and are similar. Ten of the indictments claim Davis reportedly accepted money for payment on a mobile home and never delivered anything in return. The dollar amount on those cases is $301,310, according to the Warren County  Sheriff’s Department.

In 14 of the cases, it is claimed Davis delivered a home but never furnished the buyer with a title. This amounts to $1.5 million in mobile homes with no title. In two of the cases, the victims paid for their home to be connected to electricity and water. Instead, the homes were delivered on blocks and not connected.

Three of the indictments for financial exploitation of the elderly are due to the victims’ age. “For a lot of these folks, we’re talking about their life savings,” said Warren County Sheriff’s Department investigator Aaron Roberts at the time. “Having a mobile home with no title is similar to having a car with no title. There’s not a lot you can do with it if you want to sell it. We think most of the money went to a failed business attempt where he bought a large farm on Dibrell/Lucky Road and wanted to make it a hemp farm. He had a lot of money invested in that and it didn’t work out.”

The business shut down in December of 2021 after 33 years in business.
