A woman was arrested after she attempted to have her neighbor's mobile home demolished simply because she doesn't like the people living there, police say.

According to WJXT, 62-year-old Ana Moreta Folch called a land-clearing company and told them she wanted an unoccupied mobile home she owned torn down. The company was well on their way to demolishing the home when the property owner arrived to see her home being torn down and called the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

Moreta Folch told deputies that her reasoning for orchestrating the demolition was that she didn't like her neighbors. She also added that she was doing the county a favor by having the mobile home demolished.

While it wasn't totally demolished, an estimated $25,000 in damage was done to the property.

Moreta Folch is charged with felony property damage.
