19-year-old woman, Carmen Chamblee from Florida was caught on security cameras setting and spreading fire in the trunk of a parked Honda Accord. The flame started to catch and she started shoving pieces of paper for the fire to grow, as she walks out casually of the scene.

Watch the footage from Clearwater Police here:


She thought she finally executed the plan when the real owner found out. The owner of the car, Thomas Jennings, residing close to the area was alerted by his roommate and they both rushed off with pots of water in the hopes that they can still save the burning car.

Unfortunately, they arrived a little late and the fire already spread and the car was really damaged.
Also caught on the other security footages, the said woman was spotted looking at other cars in the garage looking like she was looking for a particular car, she then finds the Honda that she torched.

The Pinellas County near Clearwater, Florida saw the video from the surveillance cameras and immediately arrested Chamblee.

During the questioning, Carmen Chamblee admitted the crime and told the police that she thought it was her ex-boyfriend's car that she was trying to toast; only she burned a wrong one that belonged to a total stranger.

Chamblee is charged with second-degree arson and is now in jail for the said crime and is set to face the judge on Sunday morning.
