KENNER, Louisiana — Kenner police have arrested a New Orleans attorney accused of bilking a Kenner shoring company out of almost $26,000 by submitting invoices for work he did not perform.

Lt. Brian McGregor tells NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/1Nnqchp) Gregory Discon is also accused of forging the signature of a Jefferson Parish judge on a phony court document.

Police say Discon was assigned to handle collections for Elevations Shoring.

The company contacted police after accountants determined that some of the documents submitted by Discon were fakes.

Investigators also uncovered a fraudulent order for a $30,000 default judgment against a customer. Although the order bore the name of Judge Nancy Miller, McGregor says Miller said her signature had been forged.

Discon was arrested Friday and booked with theft and forgery.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Discon.
