MCSO Confirms Arrests of Three Sheriff's Deputies With Ties to Drug and Human Smuggling

Another apparent black eye for Joe Arpaio and the MCSO.
Our sources, it appears, were correct.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office just confirmed that three sheriff's deputies have been arrested in connection with a drug- and human-smuggling operation.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio and County Attorney Bill Montgomery plan to brief the media on the busts at 3:30 this afternoon.

According to the MCSO, "Arpaio will discuss a year long investigation started by his office into a drug- and human-smuggling operation involving illegal aliens with ties to Mexico which has resulted in numerous arrests today including three Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Officers."

Earlier today, local TV news outlets showed aerial images of the Goodyear SWAT Team assisting sheriff's deputies serve a warrant at a home near 69th Avenue and Pierce Street.

According to ABC 15, another home was seen with crime tape blocking off the street at 69th and Cypress, and a search warrant has reportedly been served at 59th Avenue and Latham.

We'll be at the sheriff's press conference this afternoon. Check back to Valley Fever for all the details.

I am very concerned about the illegal activities (Document Fraud, Identity Theft, Conducting crimes in America) that she is involved in. Please address the above issues as soon as possible.

It seems that all of the comments here are negative. You guys watch way too much Federal News Network Propaganda.

Well, there is nothing positive to say about the fool running MCSO, care to start? I would love to hear what positives you have got to say about this imbecile that calls himself "America's Thoughest Sheriff".

Was not 3 deputies, only 1 deputy and 2 detention officers assigned to ICE.

It has long been apparent to those of us in Law Enforcement, thankfully not at the MCSO, that under Aprio's reign it has become a blight on the profession and a criminal enterprise on the Command level.  Fixing the mess will take removing Arpio from his office and installing somebody with some brain, ethics and guts.

Well said. In a corrupt culture that has perpetuated for decades this is not surprising. The MCSO is out of control and innocent people, families and children have had their lives shredded in this reign of abuse of power. These officers wouldn't have been doing this for years if they didn't think they had their backs covered.

Watcher, it's just too bad that those of you in Law Enforcement can't post under your real names and agencies so that your opinions can be taken as valid.

So, three MCSO shurf deputies were arrested in conjunction with human smuggling. The MCSO shurf will cry that he doesn't know anything or that he's not responsible. NT readers will know that the Flaccid Fool is full of shit when he says this. I seem to remember asking MCSO Captain Joel Fox something about professional and courteous service from the MCSO.  He responded by saying that the line deputies that provide police services will continue to do so. Apparently not if three of them have been arrested in conjunction with human smuggling.  Was one of the deputies arrested named Sean Pearce, son of Senate Prez Russell, by any chance? Yet another fine example of MCSO corruption. I bet all three of those deputies will get sweetheart deals made by Joe's personal lapdog, Bill Montgomery. I have lost all faith in MCSO/MCAO.

Jason, corruption can be a funny devil. It comes in all sizes and descriptions and wears the faces of the seemingly innocent. Once exposed, however, it seems to implode while trying to survive.

I don't believe, for even the fastest second, that this is the last exposure of corruption within MCSO.

I still believe the 'walkaway' escape of Adrian Cruz was paid for by a cartel. I just wish that MCSO would be transparent and tell us taxpayers what the results of the internal affairs investigation are. Internal affairs investigation? While Hendershott was still overflowing his office chair on the 19th floor? Perish the thought.

This, my friend, is just the proverbial tip of the iceberg known as corruption, and MCSO is the ship zigging and zagging to and fro, trying to avoid the unavoidable collision and resulting sinking....

Jason

You made me think of the Titanic with your reply.

The difference is that Titanic Captain Edward J. Smith went down with his ship after Titanic hit the iceberg. The Flaccid Fool doesn't want to go down with his ship despite being hit with an iceberg and flooding at a rapid rate....Maybe the MCSO will break in 2, just like Titanic....

The MCSO shurf is mentally ill. 

Jason

@Gerry and US War Veteran:

Exactly my point. Like the captain of a ship, the Flaccid Fool is ultimately responsible for any and all decisions in regards to his agency (think Titanic Captain Edward J. Smith). Joe needs to go down with his sinking ship, due to him being the head of the MCSO and all. Instead, he is chickening out and heading for the first available lifeboat that will take him far away from his agency (think J. Bruce Ismay, President of White Star Line, which manufactured Titanic). 

The Senile Spinster has repeatedly denied knowing anything and has denied being involved in any of the activity in his office, which we all know is bullshit. NT readers and followers know that the MCSO shurf is full of shit when he speaks in his drunken, slurred speech. The same can be said of Shurf Paul "Mr. Clean" Buffoon, who gave the Sick Old Man a free pass on his utter corruption and malfeasance.

The MCSO shurf has steered his agency directly into the iceberg, the iceberg has struck and now the ship is flooding with corruption instead of frigid Atlantic water. Now we private citizens provide Dennis Burke's office with information and hope his balls drop and the info results in indictments.

US War Veteran

The flaccid fool going down with the ship? shit this coward punk ass bitch would trample over women and children to get on the first lifeboat, and than claim that his first officer is the one that ran the ship into the iceberg while he was on shore leave.

America's Toughest Sheriff will not go down with the ship.  He is just a pussy.

What did I say about the corruption of the MCSO trickling down through the rank and file. The MCSO resembles an organized crime family more than it does a law enforcement agency and they are authorized to use deadly force against citizens?

You've nailed it. This confirms what so many informed people believe. The Feds are long overdue or like others have said -- maybe they are part of the problem enabling this corruption?

Even if his explanations are accurate - that he works through delegation and doesn't oversee lots of things personally - then, obviously, CUT THAT SHIT OUT.

 If any other Company or corporation in america had personel: kill a person or two in an "accident" or smuggle people or traffic drugs or miss-allocate & lose $100 milion.. etc. ... not only would the people "directly responsible" for it be... punished, but the supivisor and/or company head would be punished, repremanded and let go..... come on!! why is this guy above the law? why is he still in power? are we the people that big of idiots????even if he is not guily (ha haha i said that with a straight face..) but let's say he's not guilty and had no knowledge of any wrong doings, the fact is, all this happened under his watch. he is in charge, it's his office right? those are his people right? well dude, yer not doing your job & you need to go away & get someone in that can do the job...

that's why Law Enforcement should NEVER be a political position people get elected into.

It's just asking for corruption once you make it a political position.

Former Republican

Well said. That's exactly why Chuck Gray should not be elected for the legislature. Too much power and the laws have remained with law enforcement / military. The people have no one representing them or their rights as individuals while law enforcement can attend a funeral for one of their own by the thousands -- that alone should show the public where the power lies.

So Jabba the hut runs wild under Joe watch he claims ignorance and now more of his employees are involved in shenanigans shocking "NOT" the man should resign already and when the hell in the fed going to bring him up on charges they have had plenty of time

Maybe they are part of the problem or else why would the sheriff and his enablers act with such impunity?

Hendershott, Black, and Fox were all put on admin leave with pay in September. This is supposedly a 'year long' investigation. Really? I guess this means the Flaccid Fool can't blame HBF for this latest 'oversight' issue...

Um, you may want to check yourself into the nearest mental institution...The Senile Spinster NEVER gets his man (unless his lovers are Fox and Black) and he is NOT the man. He's a flaccid old fool who deserves to be indicted and perp-walked.....

About that pesky Adrian Cruz... the rapist of a nine year old he impregnated. The guy who was allowed to walk away while under the jurisdiction of MCSO... Why hasn't he snagged old Adrian Cruz yet?

It's time for the old senile shitbag to step down. What a fucking disgrace to the badge and the human race.

NO!!!    its time for the motherfucker to wear pink underwear, eat green bolognia, and get his flaccid ass beat by the other inmates, stepping down only means I gets away with doing everything he has done and justice will not be served because the pressure on the Feds to act will diminish, no, he needs to stay (and continue fucking up) until the Feds come knocking on his door, I want to see this asshole perp walked.

You forgot the pink bra Brother.

Besides, when the Senile Spinster's in jail, you can piss on him all you want and he can't go after you.....

Arpaio knew nothing about it.  He just found out.  He relied on the people who work for him.  As usual, they are incompetent, or crooked, or both,

Tommy Collins
Tommy Collins

Ross, I think he's disappointed. He was duped by them all. Trusted them all. He has 4000 employees, or maybe 15,000, he's not sure, but he can't keep an eye on them all. Yes, he knew nothing. He knows nothing, He sees nothing, He hears nothing, and he has no independent thoughts...

Yes, folks, that's YOUR Maricopa County Shurf...

Disgusted in Arizona!
Disgusted in Arizona!

He can't keep an eye on his employees or the obscene amounts of money being drained from the taxpayers and treated like nothing but toilet paper. This is not only disgusting but very disturbing that he has not been indicted and perp walked along with  mug shots for all posterity -- like he has done to hundreds of thousands. NO presumption of innocence.

Before everyone jumps the gun, who knows if these deputies were going to go public with something and Joe's minions got wind of it. I would put NOTHING past Arpaio and his hoods. Do anything to shut the naysayers up. Don't judge these deputies just yet.

One of the detention officers is allegedly pregnant with the baby of the ring leader. If anything, NOW is the time to roll on the Flaccid Fool...

US War Veteran
US War Veteran

Good point, afterall the flaccid fool does have a long history of going after his "enemies" with trumped up charges to shut them up, he is the master of the "evidence producing machine", notice I said "producing" not investigating, because investigating is not part of his job description.
