ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – In solving one metal theft, APD may have solved another case.
While serving an arrest warrant for Edward Lujan police spotted four light pole fixtures and a bunch of copper wire at his house.
According to a criminal complaint Lujan claimed he found the loot in a dumpster at Intel.
But APD found out they’d been stolen the night before from a road in front of the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.
Lujan, Chad Lyon and Bert Fairchild were all arrested in connection with the crime.
