Special investigators with the Texas Department of Public Safety and officers with the Wichita Falls Police
Department’s Financial Crimes Unit served a search warrant at an apartment at Fountaingate Apartments on Barnett Road on March 22, 2022.
Investigators said the apartment was being used as a base of criminal activity and was leased to Christopher Prince and also being used by two other suspects.
Officers said they found blank check stock and computer generated counterfeit checks and personal identifying information of more than 40 victims.
