Woman Arrested For Gruesome Combo of Arson and Animal Cruelty

Posted By on Tue, Jun 29, 2010 at 3:45 PM

Some combos go together naturally and joyously: Chocolate and peanut butter, Astaire and Rogers, supposedly altruistic offers of back rubs and segues into romance.

Arrests for arson and animal cruelty are not on this list -- but they are on the San Francisco Police Department's.

Yesterday, cops from Ingleside Station arrived to assist arson Inspector Jeffrey Levin, who was following up on an earlier call in the 100 block of Vienna in the Excelsior. Confronting the suspect in an arson case, they discovered the woman had also set several fires within the home she was staying in -- and possessed "the necessary elements for more fires."

They then located "a dead dog ... in the back of the residence." The poor cur died not due to fire but, apparently, neglect.

The suspect was then arrested and booked on the sad and unusual combo of arson and animal cruelty.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
