Jennifer Renee Colwell Sets Lingerie Store On Fire Using Gifts From Ex-Boyfriend: Cops

Posted: Updated:

When Jennifer Renee Colwell got burned in love, she allegedly took it out on the lingerie store favored by her ex-boyfriend.

Officials say that early last week, Colwell, 42, was spotted throwing a flaming, gasoline-soaked pillow at Intimate Obsessions, a store in Dana Point, Ca., known for selling lingerie and more adult-themed products.

The pillow was reportedly stuffed with various items purchased by Colwell's ex-boyfriend during happier times, according to LAist.com.

The resulting flames reached six feet before firefighters arrived on the scene, Lt. Roland Chacon of the Orange County Sheriff's Department told KTLA-TV.

The deputy who reportedly spotted Colwell said he questioned her and determined that her relationship had recently ended, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Firefighters doused the flames before they spread, but officials suspect Colwell had strategically placed trash near the pillow to fan the flames.

Colwell has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of arson of property, and is currently in jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.
