RIMROCK, Ariz. — A man, who sheriff’s deputies say is in the country illegally, was arrested while helping a friend deliver mail in a Northern Arizona town Thursday.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 35-year-old Sigifredo Parra-Reyes as he helped a friend deliver mail at about 1 p.m.

YCSO Sgt. Karl Bentz said in a Friday news release that the deputy was on patrol in the area of Kimberley Way and Cornville Road in Rimrock when he saw a 2001 silver Nissan being operated in a suspicious manner. 

As the vehicle passed him, the deputy saw a "U.S. Mail" magnet attached to the rear of the vehicle. 

Bentz said the deputy initiated a traffic stop and contacted the driver, later identified as Parra-Reyes. 

Parra-Reyes allegedly gave the deputy a false name. 

He said the deputy, who is Immigration and Customs 287G certified, pursued the identification inconsistencies and the immigration status with Parra-Reyes, according to Bentz. 

The deputy reportedly learned that Parra-Reyes was in this country illegally from Mexico.

Parra-Reyes was arrested for false information to a law enforcement officer and taking the identity of another. 

The passenger and owner of the car was identified as 35-year-old Sybil Maria Rogers, of Rimrock, Bentz said. 

Rogers, who was doing contract postal delivery, reportedly told the deputy that she was ill and had been letting her boyfriend, Parra-Reyes drive while she delivered the mail. 

Bentz said the woman was released at the scene with no charges. 

Parra-Reyes was booked into the Camp Verde Jail. 

A records check on Parra-Reyes indicated he had been deported twice before with one of those dates being in 2002 after being convicted of drug trafficking charges, according to Bentz.
