Investigators looking into charges of abuse at a collection of San Bernardino-area group homes arrested the director of one of the homes after discovering he was on probation for elder abuse and had been ordered to stay away from such facilities, officials said Tuesday.

Tony Dalton, 40, was taken into custody Friday for violating his probation after initially refusing entry to investigators checking on conditions at the house, said San Bernardino City Atty. James Penman.

Dalton is the son of Pensri Sophar Dalton, 61, who was arrested Sept. 5 on 16 charges of elder abuse after police raided an unlicensed board-and-care facility where 22 elderly and mentally ill tenants lived in squalor. They had no plumbing, lived in converted backyard chicken coups and some used buckets for toilets.
