APNewsBreak: Immigration officer arrested in pot smuggling after high-speed chase in Arizona
By The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) ' Arizona state police say a deportation officer with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been arrested in a pot smuggling case after leading authorities on a high-speed chase, throwing bundles of marijuana out the window of his government vehicle.

Department of Public Safety Officer Carrick Cook told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the deportation officer had been under surveillance for more than a month.

DPS and federal agents tried to pull him over Tuesday after he picked up a load of marijuana in the desert with his government vehicle. Cook says the officer fled, leading them on a chase at speeds of up to 110 mph.

The chase ended when the officer's vehicle rolled over and he gave himself up.
