Police said the former director of TOTAL Ministries in Spartanburg is accused of taking $40,000 from the charity for personal use.
Spartanburg Public Safety officers said Karen Bradley, 44, turned herself in to police Tuesday morning and was charged with breach of trust with fraudulent intent worth $10,000 or greater.
Police said on June 11, they were notified by a TOTAL Ministries' board member that an audit of their Spartanburg office revealed Bradley took an estimate of more than $40,000 of the organization's funds for personal use between February and June 2012.
According to the TOTAL Ministries' website, Bradley is still listed as the executive director though the police report lists her as the former executive director.
The website said the group's mission is to provide for basic needs to assist families in Spartanburg County who are facing a financial crisis. The organization says online that its annual budget is $400,000.
Officers said no additional charges are anticipated and Bradley is currently being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
