— A woman accused of trying to set fire to an apartment while her boyfriend was asleep has been arrested at Albany International Airport trying to flee with their two infants.

The Warren County Sheriff’s office tells local media outlets 29-year-old Sadie Robinson put a can of WD-40 in a hot oven and left the Warrensburg apartment to get $2,500 from ATMs and buy plane tickets to Florida on Monday.

Peter Moody called police when he was awakened by smoke alarms. There was no fire.

Deputies say Robinson was arrested just before her flight at Albany International Airport.

She’s jailed on charges of second-degree attempted arson and third-degree grand larceny. Court officials weren’t available Tuesday to say if she has a lawyer. The children are in the care of county officials.
