Fairbanks gun dealer charged in murder-for-hire plot.


A federal grand jury this week indicted a Fairbanks gun dealer on charges that he plotted to pay $40,000 to have someone murdered in another state.

Eric Donald Grabber, who ran unsuccessfully for the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly in 2010, is charged with sending a person to Indiana with the intent of killing an unnamed victim in Indiana or Michigan, according to the Tuesday indictment.

Grabber, 55, is the sole proprietor of Art, Arms & Ammo in Fairbanks and a holds a federal firearm license, public records show. No one answered a call to the business on Thursday afternoon.

"I think he runs that out of his house. He doesn't have a shop in town or anything," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Bottini. "He is, my understanding, a licensed (gun) dealer and manufacturer."

Bottini said he could not comment on the details of the case, including the alleged motive for the killing.
