A routine traffic stop turns into a high speed chase and leads to several illegals being detained, according to a release from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

The SUV had been headed westbound on I-10 when the deputy attempted the stop, according to the deputy the driver noticed the PCSO vehicle behind him and began driving erratically. The SUV sped away after the deputy said he turned on his red and blue lights, at times reaching speeds in excess of 90 miles per hour. 

According to the deputy the SUV left the interstate, heading southbound on Toltec Road, before it stopped near an irrigation canal.  Ten men got out of the car and fled the scene, seven were detained by PCSO and three, including the driver were last seen heading south through the desert.

The seven were detained and turned over to Border Patrol for processing.  It was during this processing that BP agents discovered one of the men detained had four previous deportations from the U.S.  William Texin, a 19-year-old from Mexico, had prior arrests for aggravated assault with a firearm on a peace officer, false imprisonment and multiple charges of possession of narcotics.
