Sand Point Man Busted With Heroin And Meth At Anchorage Airport

Alaska State Troopers

Alaska State Troopers have seized another stash of heroin and methamphetamine bound for Sand Point, marking the community’s second airport drug bust in the last month.

Troopers arrested Christian Anderson-Nutt on Sept. 29, following a joint narcotics investigation with the Sand Point Police Department.

Police Chief Hal Henning said the 21-year-old Sand Point man was “exhibiting drug trafficking behavior” at the Anchorage airport, leading officials to examine his luggage with a drug-sniffing dog.

Their search revealed almost 19.8 grams of heroin, 52.3 grams of meth, and $6,570 in cash.

In total, Henning said the bust stopped 721 doses of drugs from being sold in Sand Point, where the street value is estimated at $72,100.

Anderson-Nutt was taken into custody and charged with two felony counts of misconduct involving controlled substances. Now out on bail, he’s due in Anchorage court on Oct 24.
