Port Angeles: Drug use was common in Roberts’ home, son testifies

PORT ANGELES — Thomas Martin Roberts’ son lived with him briefly in 1995, using methamphetamine and other drugs with his father.

“People that lived there were getting high, drinking alcohol, smoking the occasional marijuana and using methamphetamine,” Donald Roberts, now in his 20s and a prisoner at Larch Correction Center in Yacolt, told a jury Thursday afternoon.

That brief testimony is the first that jurors have heard from family members of Thomas Roberts since his murder trial began Monday in Clallam County Superior Court.

Roberts’ siblings are expected to testify later in the trial.

Roberts, 56, is charged with aggravated first-degree murder in the shooting death of deputy Wallace E. “Wally” Davis, 48.
