Man Used Cheetos in Attempt to Burn Down Ex’s House

taunton cheetos arsonistThis may be one of the most creative ways we’ve ever heard of someone trying to retaliate against an ex! This 31-year-old man tried to burn down his ex-girlfriend’s house while she was still in it! But he did it in a way that we’ve never heard of before… by lighting the fire with cheetos!

Shemroy Williams has been convicted of malicious destruction of property and was sentenced to serve the maximum two-and-a-half year jail sentence. It only took the jury one hour to find him guilty!

The attempted victim called the cops back in March to report that her ex was at her home and he was trying to light the house on fire. When the cops arrived and the investigation got underway, they found that he definitely tried to burn the house down! 

He attempted to light the home on fire in five different locations and wedged a propane tank up against the house while a fire on the back porch was burning. Thank goodness nobody was killed!

When the cops found Williams, he was about 100 yards away from the home with two lighters in his pocket, along with an empty bag of Cheetos that were used to accelerate the fire.

Turns out Williams wasn’t very happy that he was no longer in a relationship with his ex. He began stalking her and she also reported that he had destroyed her cell phone, threatened to kill her and damaged her car by cutting undercarriage wires that he believed were the break lines. 

Wait a minute, this guy only got a max of 2.5 years?!?
