Woman arrested after approaching USAF base with guns, “bombs”

Joy Gilbert

A Wyoming woman is in custody after she shut down Francis E. Warren Air Force Base with an alleged bomb threat.

45-year-old Joy Gilbert was arrested after driving up to the front gate on Tuesday night with what appeared to be a pipe bomb and several weapons, as well as a handwritten note that said the firearms were previously used in a homicide.

Telling authorities she wanted to meet with “CSI,” she claimed that running the serial numbers on the firearms would prove they were used in a crime.

Due to the federal nature of Air Force Bases, the FBI, ATF, Security Forces and local law enforcement were all dispatched to investigate.

Gilbert would later tell investigators that there were people in tunnels underneath Cheyenne who would soon be murdered by a “Sandy,” and that she’d gone to the base to prevent the killings.

According to KGAB, the truck and firearms were reportedly stolen and matched a previously-filed report. Gilbert was arrested for the theft of the pickup as well as 2 handguns, 3 rifles, jewelry, and coins she allegedly stole from her mother.

As for the “bomb,” it turned out to be a fishing rod inside of a crudely constructed and capped PVC container.
