(FNN) – According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office that on February 20, 2024, at around 3 a.m., deputies responded to 11100 block of Crystal Glen Boulevard in reference to a woman knocking on doors and displaying erratic behavior in the area. When a deputy arrived on scene, they heard breaking glass, which was later determined to be the woman throwing a large paver stone through the window of a residence.
