Lakewood police detectives are seeking public help in their attempt to identify a man they believe is responsible for causing almost $20,000 worth of damage in the Belmar area.
At about 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16, a man used an unknown tool to scratch unreadable scribbles on about 10 windows of different businesses in the Belmar shopping area.
The suspect is described as a white male about 20 to 30 years of age, 5-foot-10-inches with a thin build. He was wearing blue jeans, a black jacket and a black hoodie.
A surveillance camera on an ATM captured photos of the man.
Anyone who may have information that would assist detectives in their investigation or would identify the suspect is asked to call the Lakewood Police Department at 303-987-7111.
Lakewood Police have made an arrest in the shooting of a 40-year-old man in a residence in the 7300 block of W. Florida Ave.
Jason Lujan, 40, has been arrested and is in holding at the Jefferson County jail on a charge of attempted first degree murder. At around 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27, police were dispatched to an address on W. Florida Avenue regarding a shooting which had just occurred.
Upon arrival, agents discovered the victim in the driveway of the residence, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. The victim was being assisted by another male who also lives at the residence.
The victim was taken to a local hospital, and it is expected that he will survive.
Agents then made verbal contact with the suspect who was inside the house, and he surrendered without incident. The victim and suspect are roommates, and this incident is believed to be the result of an argument between the two parties.
