SALISBURY, N.C. (WBTV) – A Rowan County woman has been charged with using her brother’s credit card to go on a shopping spree worth more than $33,000 worth of money, meals, and merchandise.

The warrants say that between June 20 and November 12, 2014, Kimball took $33,229.07 from her brother’s bank account at the State Employees Credit Union. The largest single withdrawal was for $9,900.

Kimball used the card to buy items from stores such as Wilco Hess, Shell Oil, Loves Travel Center, the Fastop Market, Rushco Market, Walmart, Kohl’s, Food Lion, Bojangles, Walgreens and Rite Aid.
