WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A forgery suspect has turned herself in to police two days after police asked for the public’s help finding her.

Michelle Lynn Heels was booked into the Wichita County jail Friday, December 3, at about 2 a.m. after she turned herself into the WFPD.

She was booked in for the felony arrest warrant for the charge of forgery against an elderly person.

Heels is also suspected of committing other forgeries at local businesses in Wichita Falls, Iowa Park, Burkburnett and Vernon.

Records show Heels has 39 arrests, including numerous theft, forgery and fraud charges and a total of 35 criminal cases filed, 18 of them felonies

Her latest arrest warrant alleges she made purchases totaling almost $1,000 on checks stolen from the home of a 72-year-old Wichita Falls man in October. Police viewed surveillance video of the woman making the purchases and recognized her from previous cases.

After the suspect turned herself in, WFPD Sgt. Charlie Eipper said, “We are convinced the exposure of her photographs and warrant information by our local media was crucial in leading Heels to turn herself into our custody.”
