An Albuquerque couple turned the tables on a burglar caught loading their belongings into his car.

Albuquerque police spokesman Tanner Tixier says officers were called about a possible burglary one Thursday.

What they found was a 70-year-old man and his 66-year-old wife both pointing guns at 26-year-old Aaron Lujan.

Tixier says the husband observed Lujan putting a generator, power tools and other items of his into an SUV.

The man says he confronted Lujan but was ignored.

The husband then grabbed his shotgun while his wife took a handgun and both held Lujan at gunpoint until authorities arrived. No one was injured.

Tixier says Lujan had just been released from jail earlier in the day.

Police did not say what charges Lujan will now face or if he has an attorney.

Just Not Getting It

An Albuquerque burglary suspect who was held at gunpoint by two of his victims is back in jail after allegedly committing another robbery.

Police say 26-year-old Aaron Lujan was arrested on several charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police spokesman Fred Duran says this is Lujan’s third arrest in a week.

According to Duran, Lujan robbed an elderly woman and then offered to meet her to return her keys.

She called authorities who went to the meeting spot.

Lujan then led officers on a frantic foot chase through a golf course. He was found hiding in a tree and arrested without incident.

Police said Lujan had just been released from jail earlier that day.
