A woman is accused of setting fire to her boyfriend’s home and stealing a dog — but the problem was it was the wrong home, according to a report.
Last week, Christie Louise Jones, 49, was arrested in connection to the case out of North Carolina.
The incident happened on July 22, according to WBTV, in Rowan County, North Carolina.
A neighbor spotted a woman trying to set fire to a home, according to the report. The homeowner came out and tried to get water on the fire and saw Jones standing near a car in the driveway.
The homeowner went to get a hose and noted wood around a propane tank, according to WBTV. The hose didn’t work as Jones used Flex Seal to try and prevent the flow.
The homeowner grabbed a rifle and confronted Jones, but she left the area. She was also holding one of his dogs, according to the report. Jones brushed the victim with her car as she left the area.
The homeowner got her license plate, and another recognized her and told police where she lived. Officers went to her home and charged her with various crimes, including first-degree arson, according to WBTV.
A witness said Jones’ boyfriend owned property in the area, but it was not the one she allegedly tried to burn.
