A press release from the Danbury PD states that Cubilette "was known to detectives" as they have arrested him in the past for narcotics violations. Cubilette was already under surveillance as part of an existing investigation, when officers say they saw him engage in what they believed to be a drug deal.

Danbury Police Sergeant John Krupinsky tells the press that Cubilette was seen meeting with a person, getting into their automobile and then exiting the vehicle a short time after. Officers say Cubilette's actions "were consistent with drug sales."

After the alleged drug transaction, Cubilette drove his vehicle to a parking lot on Federal Road, parked the car, and officers moved in to investigate further. The police blocked Cubilette in, he reportedly attempted to flee, and he struck a police vehicle in the process.

The authorities removed Cubilette from his vehicle, placed him in custody and he was brought to police headquarters. At HQ, a more detailed search was conducted of Cubilette's person, and police say they found drugs on him. According to the report, the drugs were found in Cubilette's underwear.

Cubilette was allegedly in possession of 66 grams of cocaine (powder/crack form). DPD seized Cubielette's vehicle (2012 Honda Accord) and $977.

The information provided came from Sergeant John Krupinsky, and the investigation and arrest were handled by Danbury's (SID) Special Investigations Division.


Cubilette is facing the following charges:

  • Possession of a controlled substance 2 counts
  • Poss. of over 1 ounce of crack with intent to sell
  • Possession of under 1 ounce of cocaine with intent to sell
  • Interfering with the duties of a police officer

P.S. Think about that the next time you are about to fire some drugs up your nose, they may have been transported next to someone's kiwi pouch.

Under the Bridge – Danbury’s Hidden Art Project

Danbury, CT has a lot of murals which have been sanctioned by the city and then there is the illegal graffiti. The Hat City has its fair share of illegal graffiti but most of it, is off the beaten-path. It’s near the train tracks, and under bridges, it’s in places most residents will never go. I intentionally seek these places out. I like to go to places most people would find scary, grimy or even dangerous. I’m willing to climb over downed trees, step on broken glass and dodge rusting metal to find my way to a place I was never meant to see.

6 of CT's Most Wanted Bank Robbery Suspects

Not every bank robbery is an open and shut case like I used to believe. I figure, it's the digital era, if they are on camera, they are getting caught but that is not how it always shakes out. According to CT Financial Crimes Most Wanted, the following 6 cases are open investigations, either by the police department, or the banks themselves.
