Woman Accused of Setting Fire Over Keys

‘A woman was arrested and charged with arson and burglary after police say she set fire to the home of a neighbor she thought had stolen her keys.

Sgt. Clint Riley of the Lane County Sheriff’s Office said the 23-year-old woman later found her keys hanging from her pants pocket. [..]

She called 9-1-1 and hid in a bush across the street while deputies and firefighters responded, Riley said.

The woman’s boyfriend said a friend called him at work and he rushed home to find her hiding in the bushes, barefoot and incoherent, according to the report.

The woman told her boyfriend her keys were missing, at which time he pointed to a set of keys hanging from her pants pocket and “she began to cry,” Riley said.’
