A Mexican national was arrested Sunday on charges of smuggling 280 pounds of marijuana through Pinal County.

Guadalupe Acosta-Gutierrez, 22, was arrested after a pursuit on Papago Road.

Just after noon, a Pinal County Sheriff’s deputy tried to stop a silver Ford SUV for an alleged traffic violation on Papago Road, which is south of the Ak-Chin Indian Community. The driver, however, fled at speeds up to 70 mph until he crashed into a clump of trees north of West Jean Drive and North Glyde Drive.

He then fled on foot for half a mile before being nabbed by an Ak-Chin Police officer. He was identified as Acosta-Gutierrez of Sinaloa, Mexico.

According to the report, the SUV contained 20 bales of marijuana with a street value of about $140,000.

Acosta-Gutierrez was the only occupant of the vehicle. He was booked at Pinal County Jail pending charges of drug smuggling and felony flight.
