Authorities in Cumberland County have charged a Fayetteville woman with burning furniture that was being stored in the garage of the home she was renting.

According to officials, on Aug. 26 and Sept. 16, Alyscha K. Fields -- formerly of 4583 Pennystone Drive -- allegedly removed items from the home she was renting and chopped them up with an axe.

They said the 20 year old then used lighter fluid to set the items on fire in the backyard of the home for a bonfire and party she was having.

Fields was not given permission by the landlord to do so, according to authorities. The landlord was apparently using the garage to store the items which were valued at around $2,400.

Fields turned herself into authorities Thursday and was charged with felony larceny, possession of stolen goods and burning personal property.

She was later released from the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $5,000 bond.
