"That'll Show the Creep!"
AN ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, WOMAN is currently incarcerated while waiting trial on arson charges after flinging a bag of flaming underwear onto a saucy lingerie store early Tuesday morning. Jenifer Colwell, 42, was witnessed by a passing deputy as she was doing the deed at the Intimate Obsessions store in Dana Point at 12:30 am.

Apparently she had just had a nasty breakup with her boyfriend who, in the past, had given her several gifts of purchases from the shop. It is believed that she stuffed all the now-unwanted presents into a pillow case and took them to the store in the middle of the night. She then soaked the poke with gasoline, lit it and threw it up against the building under a window where she had also piled up some bedding and pillows to aid in the fire.
The sheriff's deputy nabbed her immediately and called the fire department as the flames climbed 6 feet against the wall. The fire was quickly extinguished before it spread and Colwell, after admitting to starting the fire, was charged with felony arson of property and is being held on $50,000 bond. She had a preliminary appearance in court Wednesday where she pleaded not guilty. She will return to the court on October 12.
