She may not be the Grinch, but Florence police say she stole quite a bit. Early Tuesday afternoon, detectives say the woman took hundreds of dollars in power tools from Lowe's on Cox Creek Parkway. After loading up a cart with $700 worth of merchandise, police say she simply walked out and loaded them into a tan or silver Ford Taurus.
