A woman led a man she said was following her into the arms of the Vacaville police – and eventually into a jail booking on weapons charges.

Ronald Aton, 34, of Vallejo was arrested Sunday night.

A woman in a vehicle called police and said she was being followed by a male driver. She received directions to the police station and headed there.

Once she arrived at the department, officers converged on Aton, the man believed to be following her.

Inside Aton’s vehicle, officers said they recovered an unregistered and loaded firearm, and an armored vest and handcuffs. In a Facebook post, officers said people being followed by potentially dangerous individuals should call 911 instead of driving home.
