Some bizarre, drug-induced behaviour has landed a 23-year-old woman in jail.

In July, Stephanie Collins told police that her purse had been stolen, when it had not been.

When asked why she made it up, Collins told the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary she was "screwed up," and that people hated her.

Weeks later, Collins went on a rampage, smashing windows of Carnell's Funeral Home me on Topsail Road in Mount Pearl. Collins then went to Topsail Auto Sales, where she jumped up and down — barefoot — on the hood of an SUV, holding a brick in her hand.

When the RNC arrived, Collins resisted and assaulted one of the officers. 

Collins told the court that none of the incidents would have happened if she hadn't been on drugs — and added she's lucky to be alive.

On Wednesday, Collins was handed a four-month sentence and placed on probation for a year.
