(Memphis) A Bartlett couple says they hope six months of harassment is over.

Latasha Ward is in jail on a long list of charges including breaking into her ex-boyfriend's home and torching the clothes of his current girlfriend.

The couple says this is just the latest in a string of incidents.

Adi Jones says Ward came in her back gate and kicked down her back door and stole her clothes and turned her patio into an inferno.

“She burned everything I owned.”

It might look like just a pile of ashes, and it is, but it once was Adi’s wardrobe, “Everything. And when I say everything, I mean everything.”

She says Ward almost looks proud in her mug shot to not only have burned her clothes but poured bleach all over her ex-boyfriend's furniture and carpet.

You see, police say she broke into the couple's townhouse a few weeks ago because she's not happy her ex moved on.

“She’s done a lot. She's done a lot.”

She says the torment started months ago in March when Adi moved in.

Adi says Ward first broke their window, then spray-painted their car with profanities, poured sugar in the gas tank, kicked-in a headlight and now this.

“We have been trying to get her caught for the last three weeks.”

News Channel 3 broke the news to her that police arrested the woman who she says left her looking for everything from new pants to tennis shoes.

"Everything I owned so I am just now starting all over again.”

Adi says she does have compassion for Ward because she is in jail on a $30,000 bond and she has three young children at home.
