Multiple traffic stops were attempted by Pinal County Sheriff's
Office deputies last week involving people who were in the country
illegally, fleeing from officers.

PCSO deputies saw a vehicle speeding down Highway 84 Monday, Feb. 25,
and when they tried to pull the car over the vehicle took off driving
80 mph in a 55 mph zone. When the driver, Dimas Daniel Orundo-Lopez,
40, made a U-turn the back tire on the driver's side came off the
vehicle, according to PCSO deputies.

Lopez stopped the vehicle in a nearby muddy field where he and his
passenger, Claudio Santiago Orduno-Canez, 27, both tried running
away. Officers were able to catch both Lopez and Canez, who admitted
they were in the country illegally.

When officers searched their car they found 35 bundles of packaged
marijuana, which weighed 759 pounds and had a street value of $569,250.

Lopez and Canez have been booked into the Pinal County Adult
Detention Center for possession of marijuana for sale and
transportation of marijuana for sale according to PCSO. Lopez has
also been charged with felony flight.

PCSO tried to make another traffic stop Tuesday, Feb. 26 on a Chevy
truck after making multiple traffic violations when the driver took
off. During the short pursuit PCSO officers saw the Chevy truck
running stop signs and speeding down streets before turning into a
desert field where he tried to avoid hitting a concrete irrigation
canal but ended up losing control of the truck and crashing.

After the truck crashed the driver, along with nine passengers, ran
according to PCSO. Officers were able to locate seven of the
individuals who have now been turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol
for processing.

PCSO had a third pursuit happen after trying to stop a vehicle for
traffic violations that led to a short pursuit. The pursuit led
offices into a desert area off of Standfield Road near Peters Road
where The driver and several other passengers ran from the car. PCSO
officers along with PCSO helicopter and Border Patrol agents detained
everyone from the car. Border patrol is now processing the detainees.

U.S. Border Patrol agents from Yuma Sector arrested five drug
smugglers and seized 246 pounds of marijuana during two separate
incidents on Friday. A Mexican man was also arrested the same day at
the San Luis II commercial port for attempting to smuggle 669 pounds
of marijuana into the country.

On Friday, agents patrolling in the area discovered footprints 15
miles south of Tacna. Following the tracks, the agents later caught
up with five Mexican nationals who were wearing camouflage clothing
and carrying a total of 190 pounds of marijuana.

Later in the day, agents located three abandoned backpacks of
marijuana south of Interstate 8, near mile marker 93. The three
bundles had a combined weight of 56 pounds.

San Luis II commercial port referred a 48-year-old driver for an
additional inspection of the tractor-trailer he was driving.

After an anomaly was discovered using a commercial x-ray system, a
CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs in
the back of the trailer. A further search led to the discovery of 27
packages of marijuana hidden behind the back wall of the trailer.

reaching its intended destination."
