SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WMBF/MyHorryNews) - The State Law Enforcement Division arrested former Surfside Beach Finance Manager Tammy Gardner Thursday morning on a charge of breach of trust with fraudulent intent involving $5,000 or more, according to jail records.

A police warrant states Gardner converted $45,099.35 for personal use between Sept. 2014 and Aug. 2016. The amount of the breach of trust was determined by a forensic audit done by Greene, Finney and Horton, LLP. 

Gardner, a 49-year-old from Conway, was booked at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 7:40 a.m. Her bond has not been set.
