A Nikiski man facing multiple charges related to an illegal bear hunt on the Kenai Peninsula earlier this year has been arrested for an outstanding warrant issued by the state of Kansas.
Wally D. Jackson, 36, was scheduled to be arraigned in Seward court on Nov. 15 for 17 charges stemming from an incident that took place on Kenai Lake in May. However, it now appears now that Jackson will not be able to appear on the Seward charges because of his pending legal trouble Outside.
According to Greg Wilkinson, trooper public information officer, Jackson is wanted by Kansas authorities for a felony charge of writing a bad check in the amount of $3,342.
In May, Jackson allegedly attempted to guide three Washington state men on a guided black bear hunt at Kenai Lake. Troopers said Jackson did not have a guide license, and he was later charged with multiple illegal guiding counts, as well as a felony when the check he used to refund the men more than $4,000 didn't clear the bank.
Jackson was contacted by Klawock-based troopers Oct. 26 while hunting on Prince of Wales Island. He was taken to the Craig jail, where he is currently awaiting transport to Kansas.
