NEWS RELEASE

For Immediate Release – 7/25/2022

Deputy Uncovers Theft Ring

On 7/14/2022, one of Constable “Rowdy” Hayden’s Deputies took a civil call from an individual that owns mobile homes
and rents to people in the area. The caller stated he believes a current tenant, with past due rent, was attempting to sell
a mobile home without the owner’s consent.

The Deputy opened an investigation and began looking into the suspicious activity and found that two tenants were
contacting possible victims through various means and online. After contact, the suspects would meet victims at the
house, take a down payment or provide a bill of sale after taking large sums of money, then blocking all communication
with the victims. On 7/22/2022, an undercover operation with members of the Pct. Criminal Investigation Division
safely took the two suspects into custody. The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office accepted charges of Felony
Theft on both suspects.

The investigation leads to the belief that there may be more possible victims scammed by the suspects. If anyone has
any further information about possible victims we need to know. Please contact dispatch and ask to speak with a Pct. 4
Deputy, 936.760.5800. This is still an ongoing case and more charges can be forthcoming.

Constable Hayden stated, “I am so proud of our Deputies, they consistently go the extra mile, dig extra deep and work
these cases to the very end.”

ARRESTED:
Austin Ray Burks, w/m, 22 years of age from New Caney, TX – Felony Theft >=$2,500 <$30K
Kayla Jean Berger, w/f, 23 years of age from New Caney, TX – Felony Theft >=$2,500 <$30K
