More charges for Warren woman charged with resisting arrest Tuesday

Additional charges have been filed against a Warren woman who was charged with resisting arrest on Tuesday.

Lindsey P. Markey, 31, of Warren, was originally charged Tuesday with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct after police responded to a report of an armed burglar on Wayne Street.

Following further investigation by City of Warren Police, Markey was arraigned on Friday before District Justice Raymond Zydonik on those charges and the following: aggravated assault; simple assault; recklessly endangering another person; terroristic threats; theft by unlawful taking; and receiving stolen property.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, Markey was invited to stay “a few nights” at the 116 E. Wayne St. residence by a resident. On Tuesday, police were called to the house when Markey was allegedly trying to steal several items from the residence.

Officers were told that Markey may have had a gun.

When they arrived, they found Markey in the kitchen.

“Officers demanded to see her hands due to the threat of a firearm,” police said in the affidavit. “When officers attempted to place her into handcuffs, the defendant became combative.”

Police tased Markey, who was then taken to Warren General Hospital for an evaluation.

“She was screaming profanity at officers and nursing staff,” according to the affidavit.

After leaving Markey at the hospital, officers spoke with the residents at 116 Wayne St.

They said Markey “attempted to steal a passport… a laptop… various cloths… and a checkbook,” according to the affidavit. The estimated value of the items was $380.

One of the residents told police he and Markey were under the influence of methamphetamine and that Markey was taking the items to a vehicle and planning to drive away with them, according to police.

He told police that, when he confronted Markey and told her to return the items, she pointed a silver revolver that he believed to be real at him and said, “I’m going to show you what real Markeys are about.”

The revolver turned out to be a toy.

Markey was taken to Warren County jail Friday after failing to post $35,000 bail.
