Florence Police say a woman goes on a shopping spree – racking up more than $10,000 worth of purchases.

Then the stores find out, the woman won’t be paying the bill, and the stores are out the money.

The woman hands over her license to open up several store credit cards.  The cards get approved, and the woman goes on a shopping spree.  The only problem:  Florence police say she used someone else`s identity`s to open the account.

According to detectives, the woman also tried to open accounts at ten other stores, including, Kohls, K-Mart, and Home Depot.
