AKRON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman accused of trashing her former supervisor’s office with glitter and purple Silly String faces charges that include vandalism.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that Samantha Lockhart was arrested Thursday. The 25-year-old Akron woman worked as a clerk for the Summit County Fiscal Office until Monday.

Akron police say Lockhart used her swipe card to access the supervisor’s office on Wednesday afternoon. Once inside, authorities say she smashed personal photos, threw glitter and sprayed Silly String. She also is accused of ruining two desktop computers, a scanner and a printer.

Summit County attorney Michael Cassidy told the news group that he wasn’t able provide a reason for Lockhart’s departure from the office.

No attorney was listed for Lockhart, who has a court appearance scheduled for Friday.
