A woman faces a long list of felony charges after police
connected her to several break-ins in Highlands Ranch that resulted
in identity theft.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office arrested Kenda Lyn Burger,
24, of Denver, for second-degree burglary, theft, forgery, criminal
impersonation and unauthorized use of a financial transaction
device, among other felony counts. Investigators say she committed
multiple vehicle trespasses the night of Sept. 16, 2009, on Falcon
Burger allegedly stole cash, purses, electronics and personal
documents from vehicles parked in garages. Police say she went on a
shopping spree, charging big-ticket items to the stolen credit
cards at places like Wal-Mart and King Soopers in Douglas County,
and the Safeway in Lone Tree.
The thefts occurred in a gated community, a detail that
underscores the importance of crime prevention in all
neighborhoods, regardless of how safe residents feel.
“Complacency is the criminal’s best opportunity to victimize
citizens,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
Detectives learned during the investigation that Burger was
arrested in Denver on unrelated charges. She remains in police
custody. The sheriff’s office recommended charges and filed the
case this week with the 18th Judicial District. It is unclear when
Burger will make her first appearance in a Douglas County courtroom
or whether she has retained an attorney.
