Repeat criminal that led police on wild chase to be sentenced


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man who police say has made a career out of being a criminal is expected to be sentenced Wednesday.

On Saturday police arrested Aaron Lujan for the third time in the span of a week. After he was let out of jail on a drug charge police say he tried to burglarize an elderly couple on Thursday until the couple held him at gunpoint.

This time he is being accused of stealing a woman’s car and then leading police on a wild chase.

It happened back in November of 2015 when police say Aaron Lujan robbed a woman at gunpoint demanding her keys.

He then later contacted the woman to meet up with her to give her back her keys.

With police waiting, Lujan took off after noticing some officers in the area.

He made his way to Los Altos Skate Park before heading to a golf course where he then climbed a tree.

Lujan is expected to begin sentencing at 8:45 a.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
