Suspected drug smuggler arrested by Boulder County Drug Task Force
Not a terrorist threat, say feds
A pilot flying a small, single-engine plane was arrested on Saturday, Jan. 28, at Boulder Municipal Airport after the Boulder County Drug Task Force found approximately 55 pounds of marijuana on the plane.
Carl Gruber (DOB 8/09/1966) was arrested on suspicion of Possession and Possession with Intent to Distribute (between 5 – 100 lbs.). He is from Bethel Island, CA.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requested the assistance of the Boulder Police Department and the Boulder County Drug Task Force on Saturday. DHS had been tracking the plane and contacted local authorities when it landed at Boulder Municipal Airport. Any questions about why DHS was monitoring the plane should be directed to the Department of Homeland Security.
Although DHS is involved in the investigation (and has impounded the plane), there was never an issue of any immediate danger to the community. The Boulder Police Department would have notified the public if there had been a concern; this has been a narcotics investigation from the beginning.
Leslie Nielsen, who starred in Airplane and Naked Gun, was a favorite of movie-watching potheads.
As this is an open and ongoing investigation, the Boulder County Drug Task Force and the Boulder Police Department will not be releasing further information about this case.
Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Boulder Police Department’s Tip Line at 303-441-1974 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776. Tips can also be submitted through the Crime Stoppers website at www.crimeshurt.com. Those submitting tips through Crime Stoppers that lead to the arrest and filing of charges on a suspect(s) may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 from Crime Stoppers.
