Contractor convicted of wire fraud

GULFPORT — A business owner convicted on state charges of home-repair fraud after Hurricane Katrina has been indicted in a federal case of wire fraud.

The Sun Herald reports that FBI agents arrested 51-year-old Ricky Douglas Deveny of Gulfport June 10 on a warrant involving an 11-count indictment.

Deveny is accused of committing wire fraud while defrauding at least 10 homeowners in Harrison and Hancock counties between June 2005 and November 2006.

The FBI says Deveny is accused of using false and misleading real estate contracts while enticing people to invest in his company.

U.S. Magistrate Judge John M. Roper released Deveny on bond pending arraignment on June 21.

Deveny lived in Slidell, La., when he first began working on Coast homes after Katrina.
