An airport drug bust has stopped an influx of heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine from reaching the small community of Sand Point.  

Alaska State Troopers arrested Daniele Glodowski, 37, of Anchorage last week, following a joint narcotics investigation with the Sand Point Police Department.

Police Chief Hal Henning said Glodowski was taken into custody at the Anchorage airport before she could leave on a flight to Sand Point.

Sand Point faces a problem with its police force: It doesn’t have one any more.

In just three weeks, all its officers resigned.

City Administrator Andrew Varner says the first officer wanted to be closer to a spouse who is in the military. A week later, two more officers, a married couple, left because of a “family decision.”
 

Varner said that left Police Chief Roger Bacon — who was scheduled to vacation in Scotland — as the island's only law enforcement.

In Sand Point, police have arrested a local resident who was previously at large, following a spree of burglaries and thefts.

Officer Eric Tupper said police can't release the name of the individual yet, citing the ongoing investigation. But he said the person faces more than 10 pending charges.

The crimes began about two weeks ago, when the individual broke into the main city building and a local bar. Police issued an arrest warrant, but they couldn't find the individual until Thursday morning.
