Sept. 12, 2013 at 1:44 PM

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a woman accused of bilking four people out of more than $100,000 by getting them to invest in toilet fans.

Delray Beach police said Sally Berry, 57, of Deerfield Beach, was arrested Tuesday after she convinced four people to invest in the "Pan Fan," a real device that attaches to a toilet and purifies air, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

Instead of buying fans, Berry allegedly spent the money on clothes, dinners, spa treatments and other personal expenses, police said.

Berry was charged with fraud and released after posting $4,500 bail.
