California Highway Patrol Sergeant Makes Brief Court Appearance in Child Porn Case

VALLEJO — A former California Highway Patrol sergeant who faces felony charges of possessing child pornography made a brief court appearance Friday.

Eric C. Lund, 52, has pleaded not guilty in the case.

Lund was arrested at the Fairfield CHP office in October 2014 after an investigation by Vacaville police. At the time he was a 26-year veteran of the CHP.

Vacaville detectives were trying in 2014 to discover who was downloading child pornography videos in the middle of the night using a local wireless Internet connection at a local yogurt shop. The child pornography being viewed was predominately of prepubescent boys being raped and sexually assaulted by adult males.

An undercover surveillance of the yogurt shop led to spotting Lund’s patrol cruiser parked near the shop while child pornography was being downloaded at the shop, according to a detective at Lund’s probable cause hearing.

That led to a search warrant of Lund’s laptop computer and other data storage devices that he carried with him during his duty shifts.

By the time police were done with investigating Lund, they reported they had uncovered thousands of graphic images and videos of children being sexually abused.

Lund is currently set to start a jury trial in June. His lawyer and prosecutors agreed Friday to return to court May 4 to see about the possibility of some resolution in the case before trial.
