A Petaluma bus driver was taken into custody after a fast food chain was evacuated on Tuesday.
According to Petaluma Police Department, Lloyd Robinson, 41, was arrested on a count of annoying/molesting a child under 18 years old.
“Petaluma Police Detectives were conducting an investigation regarding allegations of lewd behavior, specifically annoying a minor,” PPD said. The subject was Robinson, a bus driver with Petaluma Transit.
Police developed a probable cause to arrest Robinson and dispatched officers to North McDowell Boulevard. Upon arrival, officers could not find Robinsons in the building he was last seen.
Police got word that Robinson was hiding in a nearby fast food restaurant. Officers believed he had barricaded himself inside the establishment.
The restaurant was evacuated, but police could not locate Robinson inside.
Shortly after, it was learned he was hiding in the building that police previously searched. He was contacted via phone and was finally arrested.
