Fear the Feds

Our local crime couple could have big problems.

Law-enforcement sources said yesterday that the FBI, the U.S. Attorney's Office and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service have all launched separate investigations into the busted, so-called "Bonnie and Clyde" couple.

The new investigations - and the specter of possibly having to face stiffer federal charges - come at a time when the spirits of the formerly glamorous duo are likely at an all-time low.

Anderton, 25, and Kirsch, 22, were arrested Nov. 30 on charges that include burglary, criminal trespass and conspiracy.

They were arraigned on Thursday and sprung from fetid jail cells after their parents came to their rescue and posted 10 percent of their combined $235,000 bail.

Anderton returned to his family's home in Washington state, while Kirsch headed south to her father's home in North Carolina.
