Andrew Lund, a 36-year-old Vallejo elementary school teacher, was formally charged by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office with possession of child pornography, arranging to meet a minor for sex, enticing a minor online, sending harmful material to a minor and attempted lewd acts with a child, according to the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office.

Between April 7, 2018 and April 17, 2018, authorities say Lund communicated with an undercover police officer, believing he was talking with a 14-year-old girl. Lund sent harmful material to the undercover officer, with the intent that it be seen by a minor and made arrangements to meet the minor in Concord for sex, authorities said.

On April 19, 2018, a search warrant was executed at Lund’s residence in Vallejo. Investigators seized electronics from his home, and after an initial review, determined at least one item contained child pornography, according to authorities. Lund was arrested during the service of the search warrant.

Lund was booked at the Contra Costa County Detention Facility in Martinez and he is being held on $3 million bail.

Investigators immediately notified the administration at Glen Cove Elementary School. Additional electronic devices were seized from Lund’s classroom and office at the school pursuant to a search warrant. Lund currently serves as a teacher supervisor for the school, and teaches two classes a day to 5th graders.

Lund will make his initial appearance on Monday April 23, 2018 at 8:45 a.m. in Martinez. Lund remains in the custody of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office.

Lund has previously taught in Wisconsin, Glenn County, Shasta County, San Diego County and Solano County.

This investigation in ongoing and includes determining if Lund acted inappropriately towards any current or former students, authorities said.

Anyone with information can contact Senior Inspector Darryl Holcombe at 925-957-2263 or by e-mail at dholcombe@contracostada.org. Information regarding Lund’s employment with the Vallejo City Unified School District can contact their administrative offices at 707-556-8921.

All these reports, make me sick, and what makes me mad? No Pictures of the Pervs. These men should be ashamed and should live in fear. I want to see these Jerk Faces and show everyone who are the losers.

If you want to see his picture, google his name Andrew Lund, Vallejo.

Hmmmm April 21, 2018 at 7:30 AM

His name & picture should not be known to the public until after a conviction has been reached.

What if he is found not guilty…. and now his name & face are on the internet

What in the hell is the matter with people?

PitstopPenny April 20, 2018 at 7:54 PM

These so called people are sick.

Why would they need a search warrant for the school. I would think the school would welcome the police in to take any potential evidence.

A search warrant makes for a more airtight case. Otherwise the defense attorney will ask to have evidence thrown out as there was no warrant. Plus, it’s possible the guy had his personal computer and/or storage devices at the school.

It’s called “Expectation of Privacy”.

Your employer has control over all areas of their workspace except places where they give exclusive control over to the employee such as a locker, lockable desk or stand alone laptop. In those areas, employees have an expectation, that because they have exclusive control, they are private and have a reasonable belief their papers and property will be secure.

Being a government employee doesn’t take away the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.

The police were prudent in obtaining a search warrant.

Might want to check and see why he left Wisconsin, Glenn County, Shasta County, San Diego County and Solano County.

So…he is 36 and has taught in 5 other districts? Sounds as if he was just one step ahead of the law. My uncle was a school administrator and has talked about how expensive and difficult it is to fire bad teachers. His ‘contract was not renewed’ by one district because he fired a horrible teacher…who had powerful connections. If I were an investigator I would look at those other districts. Predators are habitual and I suspect there are real-life victims out there.

And this surprises people? This is going on everywhere. These aren’t random cases, your kids probably have one of these nutcases teaching them right now.

is castration legal?

Wrigleygum April 21, 2018 at 9:40 AM

Castration won’t do anything for the guys sex drive. I knew a guy that got his privates blown off and he was just as horny as before, sure no intercourse for him but that’s just one thing the child molesters do…

Life without in general population; that will take care of him….
