Thorne Bay man cited for guiding without a license

Posted: Friday, June 09, 2000

THORNE BAY (AP) -- A Thorne Bay man has been cited for allegedly transporting big game hunters without a license, according to Alaska State Troopers.

The allegations against Timothy Wyatt, 39, stem from a May sting operation in which troopers working undercover posed as hunters needing a guide, spokesman Greg Wilkinson said Thursday.

Wyatt was approached by the undercover troopers and allegedly agreed to take them to a remote cabin on Kosciusko Island in southeast Alaska. Investigators said he took them to the cabin in his Cessna 180 float plane.

Wyatt was not registered as a guide, and failed to have a transporter's license or carry the necessary insurance of at least $100,000, officials said.

Wyatt is scheduled to be arraigned in Craig District Court June 19.
