The former head pro at a Kamloops golf course who is facing 11 counts of fraud and four theft charges after allegedly bilking members and stealing from the pro shop is back before the courts after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Chris Power, who was head pro at Rivershore Golf Links until he was fired in 2017, was arrested earlier this month after a warrant was issued following missed court dates in November and January, according to court records.
He made a brief appearance in Kamloops provincial court on Thursday.
Power worked at Rivershore for a number of years before he was fired.
According to court documents, he is accused of defrauding 11 golfers in separate transactions and stealing golf clubs, the property of Rivershore, on four occasions.
The allegations cover a time period of October 2016 to April 2017.
Power is alleged to have accepted cash or e-transfer payment for pro shop merchandise, then pocketed the money. He is also accused of offering non-existent membership discounts to golfers and accepting payment personally by cash or cheque.
In court on Thursday, Power asked for an adjournment and said he is hoping to hire a lawyer. He is slated to return to court on March 9.
He remains out of custody.
