A California Highway Patrol sergeant was arrested following an investigation into the sharing of child pornography, police said.
Sgt. Eric Lund, 49, is accused of sending or selling obscene matter depicting a minor, according to the Vacaville Police Department, which handled the investigation.
In August, Vacaville police started a probe into the downloading and sharing of child pornography by an unknown person in Suisun, Fairfield and Vacaville.
The investigation led authorities to Lund, police said.
During a search of Lund’s personal vehicle, officers found an external hard drive with multiple downloaded child pornography videos.
Lund was booked into the Solano County Jail. His bail was set at $115,000.
News of the arrest raised concerns from some residents of the Fairfield area.
“I have five kids, so I don’t like hearing about that,” said Ronald Robbins of Fairfield.
“When you have someone who has that kind of power in the community, they should be held to higher standard,” said Lisa Stevens. “I’ve always had really good customer service from them. So I am disappointed.”
Lund is from Chico but worked out of the Fairfield CHP office.
