US Marshals: Alaska fugitive arrested in Hawaii

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) The U.S. Marshals Service says a 58-year-old Alaska fugitive has been arrested in Hawaii.

Officials say Thomas Dye of Ketchikan was arrested yesterday as he attempted to board a fishing boat in Hilo.

Officials say Dye was arrested in 2010 and accused of defrauding the U.S. government of $257,000 with a false claim of a combat service-connected disability. Officials say that at the time of his arrest, Dye was a convicted felon from a 1996 Oregon case and was in possession of firearms.

Dye was sentenced to two years in prison and three years of supervised release after conviction in the fraud and firearms possession case.

A felony warrant was issued last year in Alaska after Dye was accused of violating his release.

It's unclear if Dye has an attorney.
