Prisoner from Mexico arrested in Pinal County

FLORENCE, Ariz. — A man deported to Mexico after serving half of his Arizona prison sentence has been arrested in Pinal County.

County Sheriff’s officials said 52-year-old Ramon Montijo is being held without bond.

They said he likely will be returned to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence for an aggravated felony offense.

Sheriff’s officials didn’t immediately provide background on Montijo’s case and when he began his prison term.

They said a deputy on Tuesday stopped a pickup truck Montijo was driving.

Authorities said the truck’s registration noted that its mandatory insurance was suspended by the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicle Division.

The deputy also discovered that Montijo had an outstanding felony probation warrant for his arrest.

Sheriff’s officials didn’t immediately know Thursday if Montijo had an attorney for his case.
