Casa Grande Traffic Stop Reveals Samurai Sword

Posted on Oct 28, 2011
A 31-year-old man has been arrested after a traffic stop ended in the discovery of a samurai-style sword. Albert Tejeda, of Casa Grande, was pulled over by a Pinal County Sherriff's patrol deputy on September 26.

According to Pinal County officials, Tejeda exited the vehicle during the stop and fled from the deputy on foot. He was later found walking with a duffel bag. At that point, officials noticed the samurai sword protruding from the bag. Tejeda did not willingly surrender to police and was arrested after a K-9 unit was sent in.

Tejeda had previously been disallowed to possess any weapons as a result of a history of felony convictions. He is currently facing charges of felony flight and misconduct involving weapons for the possession of the sword.
