Albuquerque Serial Robber Stopped—For Now—By Armed Seniors, Police Say

posted on November 24, 2015

When George Kennedy, 70, found a man stealing a generator and power tools from his garage Thursday morning, he asked the man to stop. When the man refused, Kennedy returned to his home, grabbed a shotgun and, with his 66-year-old wife who armed herself with a handgun, held the man at gunpoint for police, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Police arrested the alleged robber, Aaron Lujan, 26, for the third time in one week. Police reported that Lujan was also arrested Saturday for robbing another elderly woman, and was still wearing a wristband ID from jail when he was re-arrested Thursday. Police also found that the Jeep Lujan was loading the stolen items into Thursday was also stolen.

Although he faced a variety of charges, from aggravated assault with a deadly weapon to residential burglary, Lujan was released back to the streets yet again by Friday.
