Nebraska Woman Arrested In Iowa Motel Fire

February 8, 2014, 1:42 PM

Nebraska Woman Arrested In Iowa Motel Fire
COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA -

An Omaha, Neb., woman has been arrested on suspicion of setting a fire at a motel in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

43-year-old Carolettia Looney was arrested after police say she lit Bible pages in a trashcan in her room Thursday night.

Police Sgt. Chad Meyers says Looney told officers she started the fire because hotel management disputed her assertion that she had prepaid enough to cover four days' lodging.

No one was injured. The small fire was discovered when a motel security guard heard a smoke alarm and knocked on Looney's door. He quickly put out the blaze, and Looney was arrested on suspicion of first-degree arson.

Looney is being held at the Pottawattamie County Jail and could not be reached for comment.
