An Anchorage businesswoman out on bail on charges of fraud, theft and forgery has been arrested twice more this summer on more charges of forgery and theft, police said.

Samantha Delay-Wilson, 62, is now facing 27 felony counts of scheming to defraud, theft and forgery, according to police.

Delay-Wilson, who owned Money Sources LLC and Nona Oma Investments, was first arrested in January on charges that she stole more than $100,000 from a friend's account using stolen checks. She posted bail in February and was rearrested last month on charges alleging she forged a stolen check for $5,000, according to police.

Police arrested her again Tuesday on allegations that while out on bail on the first charges she deposited two counterfeit checks into an account, then wrote $5,800 in bad checks on it. She also tried to pay an investor by writing a bad check for $78,000, police said.

Delay-Wilson remains jailed at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center.
