There are bitter breakups, and then there's the case of Ana Rockman: State police have charged the 61-year-old New York woman with causing more than $350,000 in damage to artwork, antiques, and other personal property at her ex-husband's home. Troopers say Rockman, of Long Island's Elmont, was charged Monday after surrendering herself to state police in Kingston, reports the AP. Police say in August 2015 they started investigating a burglary and the destruction of items in a home just outside the village of Woodstock.

Troopers say someone had forced their way into the house and damaged expensive artwork, antiques, electronics, appliances, musical instruments, and other personal items. Authorities say the home is owned by Rockman's ex-husband. She was arraigned in Woodstock and freed after posting $5,000 bail but ordered to surrender her passport, notes Newsday. A message left with her attorney wasn't returned. (More weird crimes stories.)
