Windber college student busted with pot worth $115K

INDIANA — A student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania has been jailed on drug charges after police say they found $15,000 in cash in his car.

Police say the arrest about 3 a.m. Monday of 24-year-old Aaron Gmuca, of Windber, has also uncovered an unspecified connection to New Jersey and that other suspects are expected to be charged. Police say there were also other people in Gmuca’s car, who haven’t been charged, when police pulled him over in Indiana Borough.

After finding the cash, police got a search warrant for a residence where Gmuca and the others had just delivered a package. Police say they found 20 pounds of marijuana worth $115,000 in a car in that garage.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Gmuca who faces a preliminary hearing May 22.
