A 34-year-old woman was arrested Friday afternoon after she called police to report her boyfriend stole multiple things from her, allegedly proceeding to break a front window of her own house and key his vehicle when officers arrived, according to a police report.

Police arrived in the 4500 block of Conley Lane at about 1:26 p.m. and spoke to the woman, who said her boyfriend stole her phone, money and car key and would not give them back, the report states. Officers spoke to her boyfriend, who said he didn’t have the items and that the vehicle belongs to him. The report states he also told them she was upset because he had canceled a planned trip.

Officers verified the vehicle was registered to the woman’s boyfriend and told her he denied having any of her possessions. The report states she implied she would have to start breaking things until her belongings were returned and that officers encouraged her to resolve the situation peacefully. She allegedly proceeded to pick up a baseball-sized rock and throw it through her house’s front window, breaking it.

The woman then allegedly walked over to her boyfriend’s vehicle and scratched it with a key, damaging the door. Officers determined the damage exceeded $100 and the woman was arrested on a charge of criminal mischief between $100 and $750.
