Edgar Antonio Lucha Admits He was the Nude Druggie-Burglar of Westminster

When Westminster police caught up with Edgar Antonio Lucha in September 2010, he was in a Compton drug rehab.

But, according to the state crime database, the 25-year-old's fingerprints matched those a naked man drugged out of his mind had left under a 10-year-old boy's bed a few nights earlier.

Last week, Lucha pleaded guilty to being that man.

Specifically, he pleaded guilty to burglary and street terrorism, which he blamed on drug abuse. He'll get four years to dry out in a state prison cell.

A man living in the 6000 block of Shawnee Road in Westminster had swapped bedrooms with his 10-year-old son. Around 3:30 in the morning, the father felt movement under the bed. He peaked beneath the bed frame to discover a nude Lucha looking back at him.

Lucha repeatedly apologized, explaining that he was under the influence of drugs, before quickly dressing and fleeing while the startled resident dialed 9-1-1. Officers arrived to find the ladder used to enter the home via an unlocked second-story window--and, more importantly, fingerprints.

When cops confronted Lucha in rehab, he surrendered without incident--but with his clothes on.

You racist bigot. You know, Orange County has a lot of latinos, therefore, the chances that a latino commits a crime are higher than if we were talking about somewhere with less latinos. Furthermore, drugs are colorblind and don't discriminate. White people use just as many drugs as any other race. Haven't you seen the faces of meth? http://www.fox5sandiego.com/ne...Try and find a latino there, ahole.

As much as I wont jump on the race baiting bandwagon... there is indeed a disproportionate number of minorities being arrested and jailed as compared to the demographics of the county... Under your theory roughly 60% should be White and 33% should be Latino... yet the reality is that they have an inverse correlation.  There are hundreds of arguments that can be made as to why... None of which I care to get into.

Hey, "historybiff," I am merely pointing out a fact. Is it untrue that this is yet another Latino lawbreaker? Please tell me if I am incorrect in pointing this out, will ya?

Furthermore, your ad-hominem attacks have just cost you your credibility, there, buffer...

But we have lots of white folks too, here in the OC. This is a fairly random stream of crime/verdicts/mugshots we are seeing here, and face it, 'Latinos' seem way over-represented.

In contrast, your 'faces of meth' is from Multnomah county -- i.e. Oregon, i.e. home of the whitest (and most livable) city in the US.
