More details are coming to light in connection with the school principal at the center of an embezzlement scandal in Prince William County. 

The recent, swift removal of 48-year-old Jenny Bermant from her job as the head of Kilby Elementary School in Woodbridge left many questions unanswered. 

Bermant was arrested on May 3 and charged with embezzlement, according to InsideNoVA.com. Police say she used a school-issued credit card to rack up more than 8,000 dollars in personal purchases.

A search warrant executed at Bermant's Dumfries, Va. home turned up two televisions, four iPhones, two MacBook laptops, an iPad, curtains and curtain rods, and a pair of Kilby Elementary School MasterCards.

Bermant admitted to using the school-issued credit cards to make 21 purchases. She told investigators she was having financial trouble, and used the cards to buy gifts for her family. She returns to court June 13.
