Easton woman charged with theft after three warrants issued

Police say they responded to the Talbot County Circuit Court on Tuesday for a woman who was wanted on theft charges.

When officers arrived, they met with 44-year-old Sherrie Chambers. Officers learned that Chambers had three outstanding warrants for her arrests. The first arrest warrant stemmed from incidents that occurred between November 2016 and February 2017, where Chambers allegedly stole checks from her ex-employer and then filled the checks out to herself, forging the owner's signature and obtaining money for those checks.

Chambers was charged with seven counts of theft less than $1000.00, seven counts of theft less than $100.00, seven counts of forgery, seven counts of forgery of private documents, seven counts of issuing counterfeit checks, and one count of theft scheme less than $1000.00, as a result. 

The second arrest warrant stemmed from an incident that occurred in March 2017, where Chambers allegedly cashed a check at a local business and the check was returned due to being forged. 

Police say, Chambers received money for the check that was passed.  Because of this incident, Chambers was charged with one count of theft less than $1000.00. 

The third warrant stems from an incident that occurred sometime between February 2017 and March 2017 where Chambers allegedly stole jewelry from someone that she was living with.

Chambers then reportedly pawned the stolen jewelry at a pawn shop in the Annapolis area.   Chambers also reportedly used the victim's debit card to pay for items three different times. 

A warrant was issued for Chambers arrest charging her with one count of fourth degree burglary, one count of theft less than $1000.00, three counts of theft less than $100.00, one count of theft $1000-10,000.00, one count of theft scheme $1000-10,000.00, three counts of stealing someone else's credit card, three counts of using someone else's credit card number, three counts of using someone else's signature, three counts of using fraud identity info/theft under $1000.00, and three counts of using the credit card of another/theft less than $100.00.

Chambers was taken before the Talbot County District Court Commissioner where she was released on her own recognizance.
