For Immediate Release
Aug. 26, 2022

A Kansas City man has been charged with a felony count of forgery for presenting to county officials a fraudulent Warranty Deed to obtain possession of a south Kansas City residential property, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Miles W. Thomas, dob: 12/5/1971, faces a felony charge of Forgery.*

According to court records filed today, the Kansas City Police Department's Economic Crimes Section investigated the report of a forgery. An individual reported that the name of a family member, deceased, had been forged in order for the reported buyer to obtain possession of the property in south Kansas City. The fraudulent Warranty Deed, the police investigation found, transferred property to the defendant's company. 

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker noted that the investigation also showed that numerous other records associated with the defendant or his company were in the county's land records system. Baker thanked KCPD for its investigation and called for other community members, if they have any suspicion about other real estate deals involving the defendant, to quickly contact the KC police department.
