Updated Arrest: Vacaville Felon in Possession of Firearm and Identity Theft
Originally Published by American Canyon Police Department
On 10/11/21 at approximately 2am, American Canyon Police Officers stopped a Lexus due to its license plate being unreadable due to an obstruction. The driver did not have identification and verbally identified himself as 33 year old Robbie Lujan from Vacaville. Lujan said the vehicle did not belong to him and his license was expired. Since the registration on the vehicle had expired over 6 months earlier and Lujan was not licensed to drive, the vehicle was towed.
During an inventory search of the vehicle, officers located an unloaded 9mm firearm in the center console. A criminal history check showed Lujan to be a convicted felon. Upon further searching, a black backpack was located on the front passenger with mail (including a bank statement), 3 State Identification cards and a credit card belonging to other people (9 apparent victims at this time). Lujan was arrested and booked into the Napa County Jail for being a felon in possession of a firearm, possessing a concealed firearm in a vehicle, and identity theft.
Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the firearm in possession does not meet the definition of a firearm under California law. We are working in conjunction with the Napa County District Attorney’s Office to amend some of the charges in this case.
