A Sunshine Coast woman has been charged after she allegedly crashed her car and set it alight before telling police it had been stolen and attempted to claim the insurance.

It will be alleged that on May 25 a woman notified police that her Hyundai Veloster had been taken overnight from outside of a residence on Coonowrin Road at Glass House Mountains while she had been out.

Officers conducting patrols at Bells Creek later located the vehicle destroyed by fire on a forestry track off Roys Road.

Forensic examinations later determined that the car had been deliberately set alight.

Ongoing investigations by Caloundra detectives revealed the victim had allegedly been involved in a crash while driving the vehicle on Coochin Creek Road at Coochin Creek prior to the car's disappearance.

Further information obtained by police suggested the woman then deliberately disposed of the vehicle, allegedly in order to make a claim on insurance.

A 20-year-old Glass House Mountains woman has been charged with arson of a vehicle and attempted fraud and is due to appear in Caloundra Magistrates Court on July 10.
