Anthem arrests lead MCSO to suspected drop house

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Ten suspected undocumented immigrants were arrested Wednesday night after they fled from a vehicle sheriff's authorities had stopped in Anthem.

Maricopa County sheriff's deputies conducted the traffic stop near Interstate 17 and Anthem Way. Once the vehicle stopped in an apartment complex parking lot, 10 subjects jumped out and began running away. Deputies were able to immediately arrest three of the suspects.

Sheriff's deputies asked for assistance from Phoenix police and the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Law enforcement officials conducted a search of the area and arrested seven more suspects.

During the investigation, sheriff's detectives said the group admitted to paying between $600 to $5,000 to be illegally smuggled into the U.S. They were headed to California and Florida, according to MCSO. The group admitted to illegally crossing the U.S. border near Altar, Sasabee and Nogales.

Sheriff's deputies uncovered a possible drop house in Phoenix and executed a search warrant Thursday morning. During the search, authorities found a man sleeping on the property, as well as evidence that the home was used recently as a drop house. The man was arrested after questioning.

Sheriff's detectives determined that two of the 11 suspects detained were juveniles, one a 15-year-old who was accompanied by his older brother; the other an unaccompanied 17-year-old.

Sheriff's detectives booked eight suspects into the Fourth Avenue Jail on state charges on human smuggling-related offenses. The remaining three, two juveniles and the brother, were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement.
