Those who plan to vandalize should know that texting their victims to brag about it and posting comments on social media will land them in jail. They should also consult a dictionary before keying a message on a car.
Shannon Csapilla, 20, of Stamford, Conn., learned those lessons after she was arrested on charges of first-degree criminal mischief. Csapilla was released on a $10,000 bond and orders not to contact her ex-boyfriend or former friend until after the court appearance.
Csapilla is accused of keying cars belonging to her ex-boyfriend and her friend and puncturing their tires on Aug. 7. Not only did she get arrested for the crime, but she misspelled the message scratched into the other woman’s car.

According to police, the keyed message said “wore” instead of the word “whore,” intended to insult the woman. Officers are speculating a love triangle was the motive for the damage.
Officials also told a local news station that Csaplilla texted both victims and admitted to keying the cars and damaging the tires in the texts. Csaplilla complied when police officers requested she come to the station, but remained uncooperative and denied doing any of the damage.
When she left the station, Csaplilla posted a picture of the police headquarters with the comment “Stamford police have nothing on me” and posted it to Snapchat. Someone receiving the message reported it to police.

Lt. Diedrich Hohn responded to Csaplilla’s social media comment with a comment of his own to the The Stamford Advocate newspaper.
“Unbeknownst to her, we did have enough and we obtained two arrest warrants from a judge and took her into custody at her home,” Hohn said.
