Sheriff's Department make traffic stop in connection with theft case

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - A dozen Pima County Sheriff’s Deputies, and one Border Patrol agent, conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on I-10 near the Cortaro Rd exit this afternoon.

Traffic backed up along the interstate to a complete stand-still for the stop.

The original call was for a possible armed robbery suspect so deputies said they took all safety precautions, even stopping traffic in the west bound lanes while the two inside the SUV were cuffed.

Deputy Daniel Jelineo with Pima County Sheriff’s Department said this stems from a possible theft from the Wal-mart at La Cholla and Magee.
