Tamarack suitor reportedly owes $350,000

A suitor of Idaho’s beleaguered Tamarack Resort owes a handful of companies more than $350,000 after he issued bad checks, failed to pay employees and stiffed contractors for work on his home, according to liens, police complaints and a lawsuit.

Copies of the bounced checks and the police report were obtained by The Associated Press. The documents showed that Matthew Hutcheson was being pursued by at least four parties for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Hutcheson, who wants to buy the central Idaho vacation getaway, was slapped in May with a $159,000 lien for Givens Construction’s work on his home near Boise, according to public documents. He also was hit with a separate $1,273 lien filed in August for landscaping work.
