Convicted Felon in Possession of Firearms Arrested in Lompoc
Lompoc - December 22nd, 2016
A Lompoc resident was arrested on December 14, 2016 following an investigation that revealed he may be a felon with access to firearms. The investigation began several weeks ago when a Sheriff’s deputy received information that convicted felon, 49-year-old Robert Bueno of Lompoc, was in possession of firearms.
On December 14, 2016, the investigating deputy and investigators from the Special Investigations Bureau served a search warrant at a residence located in the 900 block of West Apricot Avenue in the City of Lompoc. During the service of the search warrant, four rifles and ammunition were found under Bueno’s bed. They also found a tactical vest with body armor inserted into it located in Bueno’s closet. Also in the bedroom, they discovered additional illegal weapons including nunchaku and a cane sword.
Bueno was not at his residence at the time of search warrant service and was located a short time later at his place of work in Buellton. He was transported back to his residence for an interview, arrested and booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail on charges of possession of body armor by a felon, possession of a firearm by a felon, illegal possession of ammunition, possession of nunchaku and possession of a cane sword. Bueno’s bail was set at $100,000.
