CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators say a former Charleston Battery bookkeeper went on a $109,000 shopping spree after she obtained a debit card from one of the company's bank accounts. 

The Charleston Police Department charged 49-year-old Lucy McLane Benjamin with breach of trust with fraudulent intent. 

She is being held under $40,000 bond in the Berkeley County Detention Center. 

Police say she is accused of using the debit card for her personal use totaling more than $109,000. 

According to authorities, she used the debit card to buy goods, pay bills and take trips between January 2011 and June 2015.
