CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A Ranson, W.Va., man who was responsible for the daily operation and financial accounting of Charles Town Loyal Order of the Moose Lodge 948 was charged Thursday with 14 counts of embezzlement and two counts of falsifying accounts, according to court records.

James Roy Flickinger, of 226 E. Fifth Ave., is free on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond, according to Jefferson County Magistrate Court records.

On Feb. 21, an investigator with the West Virginia State Tax Department went to the West Virginia State Police barrack in Bardane, W.Va., to inform them about an embezzlement at the local Moose club, according to records.

The investigator told Trooper H.D. Heil that Flickinger would prepare a check for a particular amount written on the club's raffle account, according to records.

Flickinger would "endorse the Lodge #948 along with his name on the rear portion of the check, present the check to the bank, and receive currency of which was not deposited in either of the two general accounts that the Lodge maintains," Heil said in a criminal complaint filed in magistrate court.

Each of the embezzlement counts carries a possible punishment of one to 10 years in jail or a year in jail and a fine up to $2,500. The charge of falsifying accounts carries a punishment of one to 10 years in jail.
