Vodafone error sees customers hit by thousands in charges

What is the meaning of in charges here?

I understand in charge mean to "be in control" or like this. But in this sentence how to understand?


"Charge" (noun) can mean:

the amount of money that you have to pay for something, especially for an activity or service

Charge (Cambridge Dictionary)

Vodafone is a UK mobile phone company; they made an error which resulted in customers being billed for thousands of pounds (in charges) (for services they had not received).

In "in charges", "in" can be replaced with 'of'.

    In "in charges", consider "in" to mean 'consisting of'. – Michael Harvey Oct 15 '19 at 8:33
