Police reports filed in court say 27-year-old Jamie Lynn Toler told her former boss she needed a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction and was uninsured. She told the same tale to her mother and grandparents.
Authorities say Toler helped organise fundraisers and collected more than $8000 beginning in September.
Medical records obtained by police show she did not have cancer and paid a plastic surgeon with the cash.
Toler, who was arrested Wednesday, was released on bond on Thursday after a brief initial court appearance.
