Man arrested over £11,000 theft from Shildon Railway Institutes holiday funds
A MAN has been charged with theft after nearly £11,000 vanished from a social club’s holiday funds.
Police arrested Martin Taylor, 47, of Scott Street, Shildon, after reports the money had disappeared from Shildon Railway Institute's Touring Club’s coffers.
Members of the club had collected the money over the last year to help cover the cost of a five day holiday to Benidorm, Spain.
Mr Taylor will appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates Court on Wednesday, October 16.
