An illegal immigrant is arrested in Pinal County and it’s discovered he had gained access to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
On Thursday, Dec. 26, at 7 p.m., a Pinal County Sheriff’s deputy stopped a 2006 Ford Expedition westbound on Interstate 10 near milepost 180 for a traffic violation.
The driver of the vehicle identified himself, using an Arizona Identification Card, as 37-year old Armando Villalobos of Phoenix. The deputy did a routine license and warrant check. Villalobos returned with a “No License” status and a felony warrant for his arrest out of Texas. The warrant showed he should have five tattoos and provided a description for them. The deputy, while trying to confirm Villalobos was the suspect wanted for the warrant, asked to see his tattoos. Villalobos told the deputy he didn’t have any tattoos and then became very nervous.
After a brief conversation, Villalobos admitted that he was in the United States illegally and his name was really Mario Bustamante. He was arrested by the deputy. Bustamante was taken to the U.S. Border Patrol station in Casa Grande and his identity was confirmed as 37-year old Bustamante of Mexico.
