- Bexar County Sheriff's Office
Anita Lopez Rosales was arrested last Thursday after police said she broke the windows of the man's 2002 Toyota Sequoia and set the truck on fire. The vehicle was reportedly parked outside the victim's East Side home.
The man told authorities he heard glass breaking and looked outside to see a red Chevrolet Silverado driving from the scene. Later, the same Silverado reportedly drove past the man's home as officers were investigating the incident.
Officers stopped the truck and found a Rosales behind the wheel, both a crowbar and lighter in her possession, according to KSAT. The 42-year-old woman reportedly tried to explain that the fire was not intentional and started after leaves ignited while she smoked a cigarette. However, investigators determined the fire when someone ignited gasoline with a lighter.
Rosales has since been charged with arson.
