  1. A lighter is no “match” against the CPS

  2. On the lighter side she was not charged with arson

  3. Excellent use of police resources. Based on personal experiences the CPS seem to be moving away from wasting resources on trivial matters. Great use of taxpayers money. Keep up the good work.
