New charges filed against fugitive guide

Posted: Sunday, April 02, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The charges against fugitive hunting guide Michael ''Tony'' Roberts continue to pile up.

Roberts, 38, fled Sept. 16 from his hunting camp west of Talkeetna as a state trooper helicopter was closing in to arrest him as the result of a sting operation.

Roberts originally was charged with 16 misdemeanor charges, including running an illegal hunting operation and same-day airborne hunting.

But state investigators say Roberts was charged Thursday with criminal non-support for falling more than $65,000 behind in child support payments to his ex-wife.

An Anchorage grand jury also has charged him with giving his employer a false Social Security number to evade child support enforcement.

Lisa Ann Jones, 38, was charged this week with helping Roberts avoid child support payments by depositing his money in her bank accounts. Investigators say Jones was Roberts' bookkeeper.
