(Newser) – It may not seem like such a terrible idea to glitter-bomb your former boss's office after your last day at work—after all, it's not like they can fire you, right? Well, no, but they can have you arrested. That's what Samantha Lockhart found out the hard way this week: The 24-year-old Akron, Ohio, woman's last day working as a clerk at the Summit County Fiscal Office was Monday; on Wednesday, she allegedly used her swipe card to get back in and then left the aforementioned glitter, as well as purple silly string and, as Cleveland.com puts it, "an unknown white powder," all over the place. She also allegedly broke two computers, a scanner, a printer, and personal photos; ruined some of her former supervisor's sweaters and the carpet; and broke into the filing cabinet.

Lockhart, who had worked at the office since Feb. 27, 2013, allegedly had a man helping her—they carried toilet paper into the office, but there's no word on whether it was actually used in the destruction. She was arrested yesterday and now faces charges of fifth-degree felony vandalism and breaking and entering, as well as misdemeanor criminal damaging. A county attorney couldn't say why she left her job in the first place. She has a court appearance scheduled today, the AP reports.
