Spending spree lands woman in jail

A woman loaded up her cart with $4,752.45 worth of items at Wal-Mart, and then tried to pay with a credit card that turned out to be stolen, authorities said.
A suspicious sales clerk refused to complete the transaction. Deputies arrested Adrienne Kelly Lipsey, 29, on charges of grand theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.
The card, deputies determined, belonged to the 89-year-old best friend of Lipsey's grandmother.
While the Walmart on State Road 54 did not allow any purchases on the card. Lipsey however racked up $99.97 in charges at a Kangaroo gas station, Redbox video rental and 7-Eleven, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said. Lipsey, of Holiday, remains in Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $8,000 bail.
