Woman charged with arson and theft

NEBRASKA CITY, NE (News Channel Nebraska) – A Nebraska City woman is charged with setting fire to her ex-girlfriend’s porch, stealing a ruby necklace and a pit bull.
Police arrested Brooklyn Proplesch, 21, on Saturday on a Johnson County warrant.
An affidavit says a sheriff’s deputy was called to Cook on Jan. 13, where a resident reported that Proplesch had dumped lighter fluid throughout the house and removed the pit bull terrier before lighting the porch on fire.
Investigators were able to later locate the dog in Omaha.
The Cook woman said Proplesch was angry because she did not want to get back together. She told investigators that Proplesch had said she wanted to burn house down, but only when the woman and the dog Gotham were not inside.
