Westminster woman charged for third time in a week

A Westminster woman was charged for the third time in one week after an Westminster police officer arrested her for an outstanding warrant Tuesday.

Chelsea Ann Simanski, 28, of the 200 block of Goodwins Quarry Road, was charged Wednesday with one count of resisting arrest. She was then subsequently charged with five counts relating to credit card theft and five counts related to forgery for cases stemming from June and July, according to electronic court records.

Simanski had not posted bond — which totaled $8,600 for all three cases — as of about 9 p.m. Friday.

On Tuesday, a Westminster police officer observed Simanski and found an open bench warrant for her. He told her she was under arrest and asked her to put her hands behind her back. At that time, she tried to flee and ran across Mall Ring Road in front of traffic, according to a statement of probable cause.

The officer told her to stop multiple times. He caught up to her and put her in handcuffs, during which time she resisted, according to the statement.

The Westminster Police Department charged Simanski with forgery and other related charges on Thursday, according to a statement of charges. She posted bond for her husband on Monday using a fraudulent check, according to the statement.

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office charged Simanski with credit card theft and related charges on Wednesday after she allegedly stole her mother's Kohl's credit card and made two purchases at the department store for $400 and $200 in June, according to a statement of charges.

Simanski is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 25 for the resisting arrest and forgery-related charges, and on Nov. 3 for the credit card theft and related charges.
