Lexington, SC (WLTX) -- Lexington County Sheriff's Deputies say a woman is accused of taking over $200,000 from the place where she worked.
Lorid Caldwell, 39, turned herself in Friday on a charge of breach of trust with fraudulent intent involving more than $10,000.
Sheriff James R. Metts says the warrant alleges that between January 1, 2008 and April 2012, Caldwell, of Lexington, submitted false and fraudulent reports to Southeastern Freight Lines where she worked as the human resources manager.
According to the arrest warrant, Caldwell allegedly misappropriated $284,491 from the trucking company. The report indicates that the money was directly deposited by the trucking company into Caldwell's personal checking account.
Officials say Caldwell used the money to pay for her personal expenses.
"Under South Carolina law, a breach of trust with fraudulent intent is a felony that carries a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison," said Metts.
