Fugitive ripped off law firm, district attorney says

Posted 4:51 p.m. Thursday

— The District Attorney's Office wants your help finding a savvy fugitive accused of ripping off a law firm to the tune of $700,000.

Prosecutors say the massive 2,200-page case file is tied to a massive fraud and theft case. The suspect, Sari Michelle Gray, is charged with nearly two dozen felonies over a 3-year period.

"She was pretty clever - she forged checks, she forged bank accounts," said District Attorney Steve Wolfson. "When the bank would call to verify certain forged checks they would call the law firm. She would have her phone number at the law firm forwarded to her cell phone."

But that wasn't all. Wolfson says she even signed up personal injury clients without the lawyers knowing.

"She would work the entire case all the way through settlement," Wolfson explained. "The settlement check would come in and the lawyers didn't even know that she had signed up clients and then stole the money."

If you know where Las Vegas police can find Sari Michelle Gray, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
