Douglas County detectives have filed a case with the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office recommending charges be filed against Kenda Lyn Burger, dob 10-03-85, in relation to crimes committed on or between September 16, 2009 and September 17, 2009.
Detectives have probable cause to believe that Burger committed the following crimes:
Second Degree Burglary C3F, Identity Theft C4F, Theft C4F, First Degree Criminal Trespass C5F, Forgery C5 F, Unauthorized Use of a Financial Transaction Device C5F, Criminal Impersonation C6F, Criminal Possession of a Financial Device C6F.
On September 17, 2009, patrol deputies took four separate reports from homeowners on Falcon Hills Drive, which is located in a gated community in Highlands Ranch. The victims stated that their garages and vehicles were entered and items taken. Items taken ranged from cash and purses, to important documents and electronic items. One of the stolen credit cards was used at three different stores; Walmart, King Soopers, and Safeway, all located in Douglas County. The Safeway was located in Lone Tree.
Through the investigation, detectives were able to determine that the same woman used the credit cards at all three stores. They were also able to determine the identity of the woman, identified as Burger. Detectives learned that Burger had been arrested by Denver Police Department on separate charges.
Burger remains in custody in Denver, but a hold has been placed on her due to this case.
Detectives who investigate these types of crimes want to remind all citizens that it is extremely important to practice good crime prevention techniques no matter where you live, whether your neighborhood is gated or not. Complacency is the criminal’s best opportunity to victimize citizens. Keep your cars locked, valuables out of sight and garage doors closed.
