(Scroll down for video) A woman who could not afford meals at restaurants, put glass in her food and cut her lips to avoid paying for meals, according to police in Florida.

Stuart Police Department said that they have arrested 31-year-old Kaitlyn Murphy, after being accused of defrauding at least 11 restaurants in recent weeks.

Murphy has been charged with scheme to defraud.

She was booked at the Martin County Jail, and her bail has been set at $5,000.

According to the police investigation, Murphy carried glass in her purse and used it to put in her food while eating at restaurants.

She also cut her lips before telling the managers that she found glass in the food.

The establishments canceled her charge and allowed her to eat for free.

Some establishments even provided her with free vouchers.

Police said that she pulled off this stunt at Stuart Boathouse, Pusateri’s Pizza, Bono’s, Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza, Fresh Catch, Carmela’s, Luna’s Pizza, Outback Steakhouse and others.

Her crime came to light when one restaurant posted Murphy’s story on their Facebook page.

Other restaurant managers then posted comments that they had similar stories recently.

During questioning, Murphy told police that she did this because she could not afford the meals.

She also said that she got the idea from a friend.
