No Carts Make Woman Burn Down Kent ‘Dollar Tree’
A woman in Kent Washington was so mad that the Dollar Tree was out of shopping carts that she started a fire in the isle and burned the place down. King County has charged that woman now identified as 64 year old Linda Katherine Poplawski with first degree arson according to news reports. The story goes that she got really mad when there were no more shopping carts to use, so she went to employees in the front and said she was going to "burn the store down". Then she walked back to an isle and allegedly lit a bunch of paper on fire, then walked out the front and took videos and pictures as it burned down. The employee's tried to put the fire out but failed and it damaged at least 3 business in that mall.
There were no injuries in the fire but 75 different firefighters were called to the scene. Her bail is $225,000.
