@CopsConsTV has been following the saga between the Rio Arriba Sheriff and Española Police Department. This year Española Police has investigated, served warrants, and arrested members of the Rio Arriba Sheriff’s Department.
On May 21st, 2020, a multi agency police force raided the Rio Arriba Sheriff office and arrested Sheriff James Lujan. Under Sheriff Martin Trujillo arrived on scene and demanded answers. He also ordered his deputies to surround the other agencies during the standoff.
Española Police felt Trujillo used his position of power as Undersheriff of Rio Arriba County to command his Deputies to commit aggravated assault on Peace Officers during the execution of their legal duties in an arrest affidavit.
On August 16th, 9th Judicial District Attorney Andrea Reeb approved the arrest warrant. Trujillo turned himself in to New Mexico State police with his lawyer present. He was booked into the Los Alamos County jail and was released the same day.
His court case is pending and so is Sheriff James Lujan’s.
