The Merritt Flying Club is suing one of its former directors for more than $20,000, alleging he wrote cheques to himself for his personal use.

The flying club has filed a notice of claim in B.C. Supreme Court against Ian Gordon.

According to the document, Gordon wrote himself two fraudulent cheques — one for $12,000 in October 2009 and another for $8,427.51 in February 2010.

“The defendant [Gordon] negotiated these cheques despite the fact that he lacked the authority to do so,” the document reads, alleging the money was “for his own personal use.”

The Merritt Flying Club is seeking $20,427.51 plus interest from Gordon.

Gordon will have 14 days to reply once he has been served.

None of the allegations in the notice of claim have been proven in court.
