TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities have identified he two men arrested after a reported shootout with Pima County Sheriff's deputies north of Tucson last week.
The Pima County Sheriff's Department says they arrested 44-year-old Michael Crooks and 39-year-old Jared Leeson after an incident that involved a carjacking, an armed robbery and a shots-fired incident near Marana Friday.
It started with a robbery call at the Dollar General near Ruthrauff and Romero roads. When a deputy tried to stop a suspect SUV nearby, the driver shot at the deputy and sped off. That's where deputies arrested one of the suspects involved.
Later, that driver crashed the SUV in a ditch near Orange Grove and Mona Lisa Roads. That's where another shootout with deputies occurred before the suspect carjacked another vehicle -- a pickup truck towing a trailer -- and sped off.
Eventually, deputies found that suspect near Silverbell and Twin Peaks Roads, where he was taken into custody.
