PHOENIX -- A Mexican man deported 14 times is in the process of being deported again, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.

Tomas Rivera-Flores was arrested Sunday when a car he was riding in was pulled over by a PCSO deputy.

After being stopped, all four passengers of the vehicle told the deputy they were in the country illegally and could not provide identification.

Rivera-Flores told the deputy his name and that he had been deported 14 times. Border Patrol confirmed that number.

The suspect vehicle had been used in the past to transport marijuana but none was located, PCSO said.

Rivera-Flores and the three other men were turned over to Border Patrol for deportation.
