BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Boca Lakes Condominium Association wants Ann Potter out. The resident of 8916 Warwick Drive was arrested Monday and charged with arson after allegedly trying to burn down her apartment building earlier in the day. It was the second time she apparently tried to do this — she also is accused of setting a fire on February 12th.
In both cases, firefighters and investigators arrived to find significant smoke, but no flames.
The alleged arson follows a bizarre incident on February 7th. According to a lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, Potter “entered into a neighbor’s residence and sat in her recliner chair in her family room. When Potter was asked who she was, how did she get in and why she was there, she responded that it smells really good in here.”
The suit also claims that Potter, “is purposely running water in her Unit that leaks into and floods the adjoining units, as these units share common walls. Once water is flooding the adjoining units, Potter refuses to shut off the water until she decides to, refuses to answer the door and otherwise respond to any requests to have her stop running water indiscriminately.”
The Condo Association seeks to have Potter removed from the property — and strongly encourages her to receive mental health care.
Boca Lakes is just south of Glades Road, just east of Lyons Road.
