HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. – A 35-year-old Florida woman was arrested after deputies say she tried to use a blow torch to burn down her former residence.

A witness told police her house was on fire and that Monica Gluck, 35, was spotted leaving it holding a blow torch, according to WFLA. The witness recognized the woman because she currently lived in Gluck’s former home and had interacted with her before, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

Law enforcement officials later located Gluck, and she told them that she wanted to burn down house because “bad things” occurred there.

She was arrested on charges of arson to a dwelling and burglary to a dwelling.

Her bond was set at $20,000, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
