A human smuggling mother was arrested after trying to run down Pinal County deputies with her two babies in the vehicle.
According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, deputies spotted a Dodge Charger driving erratically along I-10 north of Eloy on September 16 just before 2:00 a.m. The deputy attempted to stop the vehicle on the I-10 near MM 204. The vehicle sped off and a pursuit ensued.
A second vehicle, a grey Hyundai, traveling in tandem with the Charger, twice attempted to run the pursuing deputy’s vehicle off the road. This initiated a second pursuit with a second deputy.
The pursuit of the Charger was called off, while deputies continued to pursue the Hyundai. The driver of the Hyundai then attempted to run down assisting Deputies set up with spike strips along the I-10.
Spike strips deployed near the I-10 and the 202 interchange were successful. The driver finally came to a stop at 7th St. and Osborn and was taken into custody.
In the vehicle, the driver was found to be smuggling two suspected illegal aliens. The driver’s young children, ages 1 year and 5 months, were also located in the car uninjured. DCS was notified and took custody of the children. The other two passengers were turned over to ICE.
The driver, 19-year-old Alma Rodriguez Dominguez has been booked into the Pinal County Jail for aggravated assault, unlawful flight, endangerment, and child abuse.
