Daniel Jupa-Fino Arrested, Was Deported 11 Times Already: Arizona Sheriff

Posted: Updated:

FLORENCE, Ariz. -- Authorities along the Arizona border say a man accused of driving a car carrying 220 pounds of marijuana had been deported to Mexico 11 times.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office says 21year-old Daniel Jupa-Fino was arrested Tuesday after he ran from the car after a deputy made a traffic stop on Interstate 8.

The agency says it later learned from federal authorities that Jupa-Fino had been deported 11 prior times during the past three years for illegal entry into the United States.

He's jailed in Florence on charges of possession and transportation of marijuana.

A second man who was a passenger in the car also was arrested on marijuana charges.
