FLORENCE — Police arrested a Conway woman Saturday morning after they say she stole a black BMW from a Locust Street home and then crashed it into a nearby fence and building.

Police responded to the Cumberland Farms gas station on Main Street in Florence at 8:26 a.m. after a woman parked in a no parking zone and had difficulty paying for the food she bought, police said.

The woman also reportedly crashed into a fence and building on nearby Bratton Court.
