Threats Made To Burn Down House

Summerville Police were called to East Washington Street last week after the report of a woman standing in front of a residence yelling obscenities and threatening to burn down a house.

According to a report released this week by the Summerville Police Department, twenty-nine-year-old  Delane Croy is accused of coming to a residence and making the threats.  Police say that Croy is alleged to have said she would “burn the house down, if she did not get her kid back.”

The complainant has a temporary protective order against Croy.

When police spoke with Croy she reportedly told them, “I’m not perfect. I still break the law from time to time”.  Police say that statement may have been in reference to drug use.

Croy was arrested last Saturday on charges of criminal trespass and booked into the Chattooga County Jail.
