Navy SEAL Imposter Suspect Arrested in Puerto Rico

An elaborate sting was used to trap the suspect.

“We were going to award him with a firearm for his service,” Blanton said.

Luna-Gonzalez allegedly accepted an expensive assault rifle as a gift, and was arrested. But police say he jumped bail, fleeing to Puerto Rico. He was taken into custody Monday and has not entered a plea.

Fowler was pleased that Luna-Gonzalez was taken into custody.

“He couldn’t even shine the SEALs’ boots, as far as I’m concerned,” he said.
