Investigators have also named a second person wanted in connection to the scams, 30-year-old Christopher Roper. Kino Roper faces three counts of Theft by Deception 1st with bonds of $90,000. Agencies recovered $166,000 cash in connection with the arrest of this individual.

MADISON COUNTY (Alabama) – One guy has been arrested in connection with recent scam calls targeting elderly people, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. As a consequence of the multi-agency investigations, Kino Deandre Roper, 26, was arrested on October 10 and charged with various offences. Tate Buening’s mother has filed a lawsuit against his ex-estate husband’s for murder-suicide. Roper was arrested and taken to the Madison County Jail.

In a news release, MCSO stated that Kino Roper and his associates have a network of individuals who target elderly citizens across north Alabama and surrounding counties to pay thousands to tens of thousands of dollars each with the intention they will help their relatives in need of assistance while preying on their concerns for loved ones.
