ANCHORAGE, Alaska --A state legislator was arrested on a federal bribery warrant, three months after federal agents raided the offices of at least six Alaska lawmakers in an investigation into a large oil field services company.
Rep. Tom Anderson was arrested Thursday at his Anchorage home and was being held at the city jail, FBI Special Agent Eric Gonzalez told The Associated Press.
Anderson's name had not appeared on a list of offices raided in late August and early September. Agents were searching for possible ties between the lawmakers and VECO Corp., officials and aides have said.
A copy of one of the search warrants obtained by the AP at the time linked the investigation to a new petroleum profits tax and a proposed natural gas pipeline contract.
