VENTURA, Calif.— A 21-year-old woman was arrested after she allegedly set her ex-boyfriend’s car on fire in Ventura, California.
William Skinner, 32, called police, around 8:30 a.m. Sunday, saying his ex-girlfriend, Jacqueline Zavala-Lopez, was in front of his house trying to break in his front window, KTLA reported.
Officers responded to the home, but Zavala-Lopez had already fled the scene.
According to KTLA, Skinner received a text from Zavala-Lopez, while police were still there, telling him to “check his vehicle,” which was parked across the street.
Zavala-Lopez had set the car on fire. The Ventura City Fire Department put out the fire, but officials said the car was a total loss, KTLA reported.
Skinner told police he believed Zavala-Lopez would try to go back to Las Vegas, where she lived.
He was able to convince her to meet him.
Officers spotted Zavala-Lopez near a Starbucks at Main and Chestnut streets, where she was taken into custody without a struggle.
She was arrested on suspicion of felony arson— she was due in court in Ventura on Tuesday afternoon.
