Tucson Sector Border Patrol help arrest dangerous fugitive

TUCSON – Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents assisted Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Deputies in arresting a dangerous fugitive that fled into a remote desert area west of Gold Canyon on Tuesday.

Agents patrolling aboard a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office helicopter, operating under Operation Stonegarden, received a request for support from PCSO deputies along a rural highway in northern Pinal County. Deputies were searching for the suspect of an assault and robbery, who was last seen walking into a wilderness hiking area from the scene of the crime.
The PCSO helicopter deployed agents to the area who, after an extensive tracking operation, found the man hiding under a small tree and took him into custody without incident.
PCSO Deputies took the man into custody, and he will face a series of state charges for his actions.
