A Philadelphia woman has been charged by federal authorities with setting fire to two police cars during protests over the death of George Floyd.

Lore-Elisabeth Blumenthal, 33, faces two counts of felony arson, U.S. Attorney William McSwain’s office said in a news release. She is accused of setting the police cars alight during the first day of protests in Philadelphia, which began peacefully but gave way to mass looting and destruction as the day wore on.

A criminal complaint against Blumenthal shows federal agents tracking her down through social media, a t-shirt sale and her tattoos.

NBC10's Drew Smith reports.
