A Westminster woman was arrested after being charged with eight crimes stemming from an alleged break-in early Sunday morning, police said.

Amy Dolly, 38, of the 2000 Block of Tyrone Road, was charged with first- and fourth-degree burglary, possession of a stolen firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition and handgun on person, among other charges, according to electronic court records.

Dolly has been held without bail since Tuesday, court records show.

According to the statement of probable cause, Dolly and an accomplice entered a residence by pushing a window air-conditioning unit out of the way.

Home surveillance equipment captured video of the air conditioner being pushed in, and two people entering through the window, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office said in the statement.

The owner of the residence reported a .40 caliber handgun, eight rounds of ammunition and a brown wallet containing $100 as stolen, police said. It’s estimated that the stolen property is worth $500 in total.

The owner also told police he’d been victimized by Dolly before, court records show.

Sheriff’s deputies determined that Dolly was disqualified from possessing a firearm because of previous criminal charges, police said.

A court date is scheduled for 8:45 a.m. Aug. 3
