FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A woman suspected of harboring a Fairbanks fugitive last week was arrested Thursday as she tried to attend his court hearing.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1iBYoJx) reports 35-year-old Cindy Roeder was led from the courtroom in handcuffs and charged with hindering prosecution.

Police say she aided her boyfriend, 28-year-old Julius “JT” Chambers, who was being sought on a warrant.

Chambers was detained last week but managed to escape in a police car. He was arrested over the weekend.

Police investigator Avery Thompson says Roeder’s charges are based on Chambers’ arrest at her North Pole apartment and on details she related in a newspaper interview in which she acknowledged calling Chambers after his escape and letting him stay at her home.

Both remained jailed Friday at Fairbanks Correctional Center.
