Sex offender David Albert Burge, 47, notified police that he will be living at 16557 N. Highway 87 #7 in Rye.
During the summer of 1994, police say Burge molested his 9-year-old daughter on several occasions and had sexual conduct with her 12-year-old friend.
Burge was convicted of sexual assault with a minor and spent five years in jail.
Burge is current on his registration requirements. Burge, who drives a tan 1987 Toyota truck with Arizona license plate 389SXC, is 6 feet 2 inches tall, 187 pounds and has brown hair and green eyes.
It is the responsibility of the chief law enforcement officer having jurisdiction where the offender resides to make notification to the community.
Notification must be made when certain sex offenders are released from the Arizona State Prison, accepted under an interstate compact or released from the county jail back into the community.
Burge has been convicted of a sex offense, which calls for community notification. The Gila County Sheriff’s Office at this time does not have any outstanding warrants on Burge.
Citizen abuse of this information to harass, intimidate, or threaten sex offenders will not be tolerated.
