The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division said Wednesday that agents had arrested the former Lyman Town Clerk.

SLED said Tamala Redd was charged with breach of trust and financial transaction card fraud.

Warrants state Redd, 46, swindled the town out of more than $10,000 in traffic related fines and court charges that she was in charge of collecting and entering into the LawTrak system.

The criminal activity reportedly took place between December 3, 2012 and June 1, 2016.

Redd is accused of changing the amount of traffic dispositions and issuing refunds for fines paid in cash.

Warrants state she also fabricated emails to cover up the crimes.

Redd is also accused of using town credit cards issued to her and another employee to make personal purchases.

The purchases included decorations, car rentals, hotel rentals, and equipment needed for her son’s wedding.

The sum of the personal purchases was nearly $8,000, the warrants state.

Spartanburg County jail records show Redd was booked in the Detention Center early Wednesday morning.
