Authorities round up defendants on Navajo Nation

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Authorities have rounded up nearly a dozen people charged with felony crimes on the Navajo Nation ranging from kidnapping to voluntary manslaughter.

City, state, tribal and federal authorities fanned out across the western portion of the reservation in search of the defendants over the past two weeks.

McDonald Rominger is the head of the FBI's office in Flagstaff. He says several people were picked up Wednesday. Two others were taken into custody last week, and federal authorities placed detainers on two men already in jail.

Rominger says one person authorities had been seeking in Tuba City on kidnapping and assault charges couldn't be found. Rominger says most of the crimes occurred within the past year.

U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman Cosme Lopez says the court documents in the cases are sealed.
