For the second time in three weeks, Tucson police are investigating a vandalism incident at Pueblo High School, officials said.

At least two classrooms were vandalized during the break-in, which happened Friday night, according to a post on Tucson Unified School District's Facebook page.

Few details are available at this time, as the investigation is in the early stages.

In response to the incident, TUSD Superintendent\u00a0H.T. Sanchez personally offered a $1,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to an arrest.

\u201cWe are disappointed that vandals continue to disrupt education for our Pueblo community,\" Sanchez said in the post.

Pueblo sustained nearly $1 million in damage during the Jan. 3 break-in, with three science classrooms still closed due to chemical contamination and fire damage, the post said.

It's unknown at this time if the two incidents are related, but additional security has already been added to Pueblo's campus.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME, should they wish to remain anonymous.

Police have identified the 40-year-old pedestrian killed in a car crash Thursday near the Greyhound bus station downtown.

James Michael Reinhardt's next of kin have been notified, and an autopsy was taking place Friday to help determine the exact cause of death,\u00a0aid Sgt. Pete Dugan, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

Shortly after 7 a.m. people walking by the bus station, located at 471 West Congress Street, noticed an unresponsive person and called 911, Dugan said.

The Tucson Fire Department came out and pronounced the adult male dead.

Traffic detectives responded and saw that the victim had obvious signs of trauma from being hit by a car. At this time, the driver and vehicle involved in the crash are unknown, Dugan said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.

A Tucson woman involved in an adoption scam involving a Boston couple was sentenced Tuesday to 100 days in jail and four years probation.\u00a0

Pima County Superior Court Judge Casey McGinley told Karla Vargas that after reviewing the case Friday he was prepared to sentence her to prison for a financial crime he said was both unusual and emotionally harmful.\u00a0

However, McGinley told the 35-year-old woman he reconsidered because she has had a tragic life, and also because the victims in the case asked that she be spared prison.

He warned her to be careful going forward, to stop lying and \"using other people's good will against them.\"

If she ends up back in his courtroom, \"you will have used up all of everyone's good graces.\"

Cindy Cantrell, a journalist, and her husband, Jack McHugh, a contractor, first connected with Vargas in July 2015 through California-based Adoption Network Law Center.

Vargas, who has had 12 children and a long history of child-welfare issues, kept the births a secret and then tried to get money after the babies were born while pretending to still be pregnant. She admitted to a Tucson police detective that she didn\u2019t want to give up the twins she was carrying and kept it quiet to get money.

Vargas and her sister, Lucianna Lopez, set them up from the beginning, police records say, by telling them Lopez was Vargas\u2019 landlord and exaggerating by $100 per month the amount of the rent due.\u00a0

A mother facing child abuse charges after her daughter was severely burned in a bathtub was attacked by two Pima County jail inmates, an official said.

Samantha Osteraas, who initially declined protective custody, had her life threatened, and she was punched and her hair pulled, said Lt. Elsa Navarro of the Pima County Sheriff's Department Wednesday.

The incident occurred Jan. 11 in the living area of a housing unit, said Navarro, who oversees the jail's special management housing.

Since then, Osteraas was placed in protective custody. She received medical treatment, but her injuries were not serious, Navarro said.

Osteraas was booked into jail Jan. 5 on two counts of child abuse after her 5-year-old daughter suffered third-degree burns to 80 percent of her body during a Dec. 29 incident, according to Pima County Superior Court documents.

\"She was assaulted by a couple of inmates who saw the news, and told her it was retaliation because she hurt her child,\" Navarro said.

Osteraas reported the assault after it occurred, and detectives conducted an investigation.

The inmates involved were disciplined internally, each receiving days of solitary confinement to their quarters, said Navarro.

An inspector working in a construction area on Tucson's south side was seriously injured after being struck by car that ran off the roadway, police said.

Shortly before 1 p.m., Tucson police went to the 1800 block of East Hughes Access Road, near South Nogales Highway and Aerospace Parkway, for reports of a car crash, said Sgt. Pete Dugan.

Police learned that a woman was traveling westbound on Hughes Access when she lost control of her car, crashing into a barricade and going off the roadway. The vehicle continued, striking a road inspector before crashing into a tractor, Dugan said.

The inspector was taken to the hospital in serious condition, Dugan said.

The driver was also taken to the hospital, but wasn't seriously injured.

It's unclear what caused the crash, as police are still investigating the incident, Dugan said.

The roadway is restricted to one lane while the scene is processed and cleared.

Juan Rodolfo Lugo-Urias, 35, of Playas de Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico was taken into custody by officers at the Mariposa Commercial Facility. A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers when Lugo-Urias attempted to enter Nogales, Arizona through the port. The dog alerted officers to the presence of drugs inside the trailer's front wall and rear doors. Nearly 400 packages of meth were removed from the tractor-trailer, authorities said. The drugs and vehicle were seized and Lugo-Urias was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.","byline":"Customs and Border Protection","hireswidth":null,"hiresheight":null,"hiresurl":null,"presentation":"","versions":{"full":{"type":"image/jpeg","width":"620","height":"438","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/tucson.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/9/c3/9c306868-cec5-11e5-98bf-3f5ad0309a6b/56b935a23733e.image.jpg?resize=620%2C438"},"100": {"type":"image/jpeg","width":"100","height":"56","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/tucson.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/9/c3/9c306868-cec5-11e5-98bf-3f5ad0309a6b/56b935a23733e.image.jpg?crop=620%2C348%2C0%2C44&resize=100%2C56&order=crop%2Cresize"},"300": {"type":"image/jpeg","width":"300","height":"168","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/tucson.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/9/c3/9c306868-cec5-11e5-98bf-3f5ad0309a6b/56b935a23733e.image.jpg?crop=620%2C348%2C0%2C44&resize=300%2C168&order=crop%2Cresize"},"1024":{"type":"image/jpeg","width":"1024","height":"575","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/tucson.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/9/c3/9c306868-cec5-11e5-98bf-3f5ad0309a6b/56b935a23733e.image.jpg?crop=620%2C348%2C0%2C44"}}},{"id":"4253edee-c158-11e5-837f-1f7b83eac9fc","description":"Customs and Border Protection officers at the Mariposa crossing in Nogales seized nearly 540 pounds of marijuana, worth about $270,000, from a RV crossing into Arizona on Jan. 19, 2016.

A Tucson woman accused of defrauding a Boston couple in an adoption plan was given a stern warning Tuesday before being sentenced to 100 days in jail and four years of probation.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Casey McGinley had considered sentencing Karla Vargas to prison, he said, for a financial crime he called both unusual and deeply hurtful. McGinley said he changed his mind after reflecting on Vargas\u2019 difficult life, and also because the victims asked that she be spared prison.

McGinley then warned Vargas to stop making poor decisions and \u201cusing other people\u2019s good will against them.\u201d

The judge did not provide details about what had happened in Vargas\u2019 life.

Victim Cindy Cantrell, a Boston journalist, said after Tuesday\u2019s hearing that she had requested prison time for Vargas and so did her husband, Jack McHugh. She was confused how this message was not clearly conveyed to the judge, but also said she is just grateful Vargas was prosecuted.

\u201cWhat\u2019s done is done,\u201d she wrote in an email exchange with the Arizona Daily Star.

Vargas, 35, who has had 12 children and a long history of child-welfare issues, kept the November 2015 births of her twins a secret and then tried to get money after the babies were born while pretending to still be pregnant, Tucson police said. A Tucson police detective said Vargas admitted that she didn\u2019t want to give up the twins she was carrying and kept it quiet to get money from Cantrell and McHugh.

Vargas, the judge said, used her pregnancy to string along the couple and got them to \u201cinvest time and money and emotion\u201d toward adopting children he said Vargas \u201cknew they would not be getting.\u201d

\u201cYou are not before this court because you decided to change your mind,\u201d he said, adding she had the right to do that at any time if she had simply told the people involved.

Vargas pleaded guilty in December to one count of attempted fraud and artifice, in return for other charges being dropped. She was indicted on five counts including two of forgery, two of fraud scheme and artifice and one of theft.

McGinley said if she violates her probation and ends up back in his courtroom, he will send her to prison.

\u201cYou will have used up all of everyone\u2019s good graces,\u201d he said.

Vargas and her sister, Lucianna Lopez, set the couple up from the beginning, Tucson Police Detective Jennifer Burns said during an interview last week, by telling them Lopez was Vargas\u2019 landlord and exaggerating by $100 per month the amount of rent due. Lopez, who was indicted on the same charges as her sister, still has her case pending.

The total in rent and other living expenses paid by the couple to Vargas over four to five months amounted to $6,014. That amount was reimbursed by the California-based Adoption Network Law Center.

The twins were removed from Vargas\u2019 care in May by Arizona\u2019s Department of Child Safety. Their status is not a matter of public record.

Neither Benjamin Mendola, a deputy Pima County attorney, nor Vargas\u2019 defense attorney, Michelle Bowan, would comment on the sentencing.

Mendola did not make a specific request for sentencing, other than pointing out Vargas had a prior conviction for theft and that she carried out the current crime for financial gain. He said there wasn\u2019t much he could add that went beyond Cantrell\u2019s letter to the court, which was not read aloud, but which Cantrell provided to the Star Tuesday.

\u201cOur final message to you, Karla, is simple. Get it together. Stop lying. Stop stealing. Stop hurting people,\u201d Cantrell wrote in her victim impact statement because she couldn\u2019t be present for the hearing.

\u201cYou are fortunate to have so many children, and even if none of them lives with you, you still can and should become a mother and productive citizen of which they can feel proud.\u201d

When the judge asked Vargas if she had anything to say before her sentencing, she answered, \u201cI\u2019m sorry.\u201d

A man has been arrested in the case of a woman who was shot in the face early Monday in Sierra Vista, officials say.

Eric Douglas Bryan was arrested Monday afternoon and booked into the Cochise County jail on suspicion of multiple charges, including attempted murder, aggravated assault and burglary.

Bryan, 46, was set for an initial court appearance today.

A 30-year-old woman was found shot in the face in the 200 block of North Third Street, north of East Fry Blvd, in Sierra Vista Monday morning.

Cochise County Sheriff\u2019s deputies discovered the woman after responding to a call of a shooting in the area about 2 a.m., according to a news release.

No further information in the case has been released.

A Boston couple longing to be parents were thrilled when a Tucson woman, pregnant with twins, saw their adoption request online and chose them.

\u201cIt seemed like a fairy tale to us that she was due at Christmas,\u201d Cindy Cantrell said.

Cantrell, a journalist, and her husband, Jack McHugh, a contractor, first connected with Karla Vargas in July 2015 through California-based Adoption Network Law Center.

The idea of raising twins made them pause only a moment before they became enamored with the idea. They\u2019d been through disappointments and had their hopes for adoption dashed before.

\u201cI thanked her again and again and again for choosing us,\u201d Cantrell said. \u201cWe felt so fortunate.\u201d

They signed the contract that month and agreed to provide monthly support to Vargas through the law center. They also paid Tucson-based Oasis Adoption Services Inc. for its services for the birth mother.

In addition to rent, the couple also paid her monthly food bills, bought her maternity clothing, set aside money for counseling she might want, and paid for her phone and bus passes.

\u2022\u2022\u2022

Looking back, Cantrell sees the warning signs.

The first: Vargas did not contact the couple as promised after she learned the babies\u2019 genders.

She also told them her cellphone was going to be turned off, which was perplexing because Cantrell and her husband were paying the bill. And a couple of times she asked them to pay rent early because her landlord was \u201cgoing on vacation.\u201d

\u201cIt was always something,\u201d Cantrell said. \u201cI knew she\u2019d had a tough life and it made me uncomfortable and sad, but I kept giving her the benefit of the doubt.\u201d

Vargas also didn\u2019t seem interested in meeting the couple \u2014 which Cantrell said they respected as her choice \u2014 but then suddenly changed her mind and had them come the weekend there was a pro football game in Phoenix.

Vargas and her sister, both Dallas fans, kept suggesting they all go see the game and were so focused on getting there that, to Cantrell, it seemed that was the reason they\u2019d invited the couple out.

But there was also a tender moment that September weekend, when Vargas invited Cantrell along to an ultrasound appointment. Cantrell said when she saw the twins, she felt overcome with love and excitement.

\u201cI thought, \u2018This is real. This is happening,\u2019\u201d she said.

\u2022\u2022\u2022

Communication after the Tucson visit became increasingly sporadic.

On Nov. 10, Cantrell\u2019s mother-in-law died unexpectedly, leaving the couple grieving and busy handling details.

Vargas was out of touch, too, so on Nov. 29, Cantrell sent a text to her. \u201cIs everything OK between us?\u201d she asked.

Vargas responded, \u201cYes. Why?\u201d

McHugh, Cantrell\u2019s husband, exchanged text messages the next day with Vargas\u2019 twin sister, whom they knew as Lucy, explaining they\u2019d been unable to get much feedback from Vargas and wondered when they should fly out to Tucson. The text exchange shows Lucy told them her sister\u2019s doctors thought the twins would arrive Dec. 14.

Meanwhile, Oasis Adoption was trying to contact Vargas, who was so evasive the owner made some calls trying to figure out why, Cantrell said.

Soon, the couple received a conference call from the agency and the California law center: Vargas, they were told, had secretly given birth on Nov. 15, two weeks before the reassuring texts.

The twins were in a local hospital\u2019s neonatal intensive-care unit for a couple of weeks before Vargas took them home Nov. 30. Only she and her sister knew that, records show.

Then, on Dec. 1, a text from Vargas\u2019 phone came through to the law center, which had withheld payment when Vargas couldn\u2019t be reached: Rent was due and funds were needed for the supposedly expectant mother.

\u2022\u2022\u2022

A month later, in January 2016, Cantrell contacted the Tucson Police Department. She said she hoped an investigation would prevent other couples from being victimized.

Vargas, a 35-year-old who has had 12 children and a long history of child-welfare issues, had gone through with at least one adoption before. \u201cThat\u2019s where we gained our hope from, and that\u2019s where she learned the system,\u201d Cantrell said.

Detective Jennifer Burns said it was the first time she\u2019d heard of adoption fraud allegations in her 16 years with Tucson police, including a decade working financial crimes.

\u201cThe case started up quite a discussion,\u201d Burns said of her unit. \u201cWe were not familiar with the laws of adoption.\u201d

Burns and her supervisor were motivated to try to build a case by two things Cantrell reported: Vargas kept the births a secret and then tried to get money after the babies were born while pretending to still be pregnant.

Burns said that during her investigation, Vargas admitted she didn\u2019t want to give up the twins she was carrying and kept it quiet to get money.

Vargas and her sister, Lucianna Lopez, set them up from the beginning, Burns said, by telling them Lopez was Vargas\u2019 landlord and exaggerating by $100 per month the amount of the rent due. The couple did not know the sister \u201cLucy\u201d they would later meet was the same person posing as Vargas\u2019 landlord, police records show.

The total in rent and other living expenses paid by the couple to Vargas over the four to five months amounted to $6,014.

Vargas admitted in a December plea hearing only that she lied about the amount of rent due, said her attorney, Michelle Bowen. Vargas turned down an interview request by the Arizona Daily Star.

Vargas pleaded guilty to a Class 3 felony for attempted fraud scheme and artifice, said Benjamin Mendola, a deputy Pima County attorney. She is being held at the Pima County jail; bond is set at $11,000.

She could be ordered to spend up to 8.7 years in prison or up to five years on probation at her sentencing Tuesday before Pima County Superior Court Judge Casey McGinley.

Lopez also was indicted on charges of fraud and forgery, and her case is still pending. Her attorney, Richard Kingston, would not talk to the Star.

\u2022\u2022\u2022

Catherine Braman, executive director of Oasis Adoption Services, would not comment on Vargas\u2019 case specifically but said she has heard of only one other Arizona case in which a birth mother was prosecuted for fraud.

\u201cThere\u2019s a lot of safeguards in place,\u201d said Braman, who has operated her agency since 2000 and worked in adoption since 1996. \u201cWe work really hard to not let that happen.\u201d

Kristin Yellin, chief legal counsel with the Adoption Network Law Center, said her organization provides legal oversight in adoption cases and financial protection if a birth mother changes her mind.

Yellin\u2019s organization has reimbursed the Boston couple for the money they spent supporting Vargas.

\u201cWe have to let our clients know we may never know the whole truth about any particular individual,\u201d Yellin said. They do records checks on any birth mother seeking adoption for her child. \u201cIf there are things like fraud or bad checks or drug issues in the past, yes, we will let them know.\u201d

\u2022\u2022\u2022

The twins \u2014 a boy and a girl \u2014 are now 14 months old, their well-being and current caregivers not a matter of public record.

Cantrell and McHugh started training to be foster parents last fall, a final attempt to adopt the twins, who were removed from Vargas\u2019 care by Arizona\u2019s Department of Child Safety in May.

But a short time after completing the initial steps, the couple realized how complicated and prolonged that process would be and have since entered into an adoption agreement for another baby.

While they are overjoyed to have another chance to become parents, Cantrell said it has taken a long time to recover from an experience she describes as \u201cpsychologically violent.\u201d

Cantrell said having Detective Burns invest so much time in investigating their case \u201chas gone a long way toward helping me heal from trauma that is still difficult to describe.\u201d

\u201cShe listened to me, she asked how I was doing,\u201d Cantrell said. \u201cI expected our interactions to be very businesslike, but she reached out from a place of compassion and empathy.\u201d

Usually, Burns said, the crimes she investigates are property crimes related to businesses or banks, situations where people are disappointed but not brokenhearted. But this case resonated with her, from one mother to another.

When she learned Cantrell and her husband were advancing toward adopting another child, she sent them gifts, all things her own children had enjoyed when they were young: a rattle, a special blanket and a Baby Einstein music player.

\u201cIt felt like a victory for them,\u201d Burns said. \u201cI wanted a happy ending for her. I didn\u2019t want her to give up.\u201d

The gifts from the detective were among the first presents they received for the adoption that\u2019s now underway.

\u201cWe looked at her note,\u201d Cantrell said, \u201cand we both cried.\u201d

South Tucson police officers were working two possible shots fired incidents Friday night on South Sixth Avenue in which one man was found injured at a fast-food restaurant.

In the first incident, officers responded to Sixth Avenue and East 29th Street, for a report of an injured person, said Police Chief Michael Ford.

A McDonald's restaurant is at that corner.

Officers found a man with a head injury and the man was treated by paramedics and taken to a hospital.

\"We have not confirmed his injuries are related to gunshots,\" Ford said.

When officers were responding to the first call, there were reports of shots fired in a parking lot at Martinez Funeral Chapel at 2580 S. Sixth Ave., said Ford. The chapel is near East 36th Street.

\"We are treating it as an active scene, and there have been no reports of any injuries,\" said Ford shortly after 9 p.m.

He said people were being escorted out of the chapel one by one.

Two men and a woman were arrested Friday in connection to a slaying in December of a man south of Tucson, authorities said.

Jessica Rodriguez, 26, and Aaron Heath, 35, were arrested in Tucson and Rodriguez's brother, Joel Rodriguez, 28, was arrested in Phoenix, said Deputy Cody Gress, a Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman.

Heath was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, and Jessica Rodriguez was booked on suspicion of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, said Gress. Joel Rodriguez was booked into the Maricopa County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, Gress said.

Detectives served multiple search warrants in Tucson and Phoenix during the investigation of the shooting death of Richard Jensen, 36, on Dec. 11 in the 1000 block of East Fenley Drive.

The neighborhood is west of South Nogales Highway and south of East Old Vail Road.

Deputies responded to the shooting scene shortly after 2 p.m. and found Jensen with multiple gunshot wounds. Jensen was treated at the scene by deputies until paramedics arrived and transported him to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Homicide detectives learned from witnesses that a vehicle fled the scene and it was occupied by two men.

Gress said the investigation is continuing.\u00a0

The Pima County Sheriff\u2019s Department recognized dozens of staffers as well as members of the community during its 31st annual awards ceremony Friday.

Honors were reserved for members of the organization who have displayed exemplary levels of service as well as those in the community who have supported the Sheriff\u2019s Department.

The medal of honor was awarded to Sgt. Brian Kunze, who was also one of four to receive a purple heart award. Other purple heart recipients include deputies Koby Knodle, Travis Rice and Jesus Vivaldo.

The medal of valor was given to deputies Richard Coz and Kurt Schumacher. Deputies Russell Gibson and Jairo Tadeo were honored with medals of merit.

Deputies Adrian Gallo and Joe Serrano, who rescued a woman from a burning truck, were presented with Carnegie Hero medals from the national Carnegie Hero Fund Commission.

The following teams were recognized with the Sheriff\u2019s Unit Commendation: domestic violence, motorcycle, recruiting, SAV patrol, SCHAAD task force, school resource officers and the TARNOW task force.

Public safety achievement medals were awarded to 20 law enforcement officers of various ranks; a dozen community members received citizen medals; and nearly three dozen others were given sheriff\u2019s commendation certificates.

A Tucson girl who is in critical condition after being submerged in scalding water, allegedly by her adoptive mother, had endured neglect long before she was adopted.

The child\u2019s adoptive mother, Samantha Osteraas, 28, was arrested Jan. 5 on suspicion of child abuse after the girl was severely burned in a bathtub Dec. 29. The mother might have waited up to six hours to seek medical treatment for the 5-year-old, court records show.

The child remains in intensive care with third-degree burns over 80 percent of her body.

The Arizona Department of Child Safety released a brief account of the girl\u2019s history late Thursday. Previous reports of abuse and neglect, which are not always a public record, are released when a child dies or nearly dies as a result of maltreatment.

The child was adopted last summer by Samantha and Justin Osteraas, law enforcement records and accounts on social media show.

At about 8 p.m. Dec. 29, sheriff\u2019s deputies and paramedics with Rural Metro Fire Department arrived at the Osteraas\u2019 home, in the 2900 block of West Sun Ranch Trail, near North Shannon Road and West Lambert Lane, for reports of a burned child, the search warrant return says.

Osteraas told 911 dispatchers she didn\u2019t realize she was bathing her daughter in hot water. When authorities arrived, they noticed significant burns on the girl\u2019s body from her upper-chest down, the document says.

Deputies also noted bruises to the child\u2019s neck and left arm, and saw blood and signs of trauma on her upper lip. Hours after the incident, it was reported that she was in respiratory and organ failure.

Osteraas, who has been charged with two counts of child abuse, is in the Pima County jail; bond has been set at $25,000.

Pima County Sheriff's deputies arrested two people Thursday in connection to break-ins of multiple houses and vehicles on Tucson's northwest side.

Mathew Schreiber, 19, and Sydney Lupo, 21, were booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of multiple burglary charges, said Deputy Cody Gress, a sheriff's department spokesman.

Detectives said Schreiber and Lupo were boyfriend and girlfriend.

Schreiber faces 13 counts of burglary, possession of a dangerous drug and possession of marijuana. Lupo faces 14 counts of burglary, Gress said.

Investigators are working in partnership with the Marana Police Department to determine if Schreiber and Lupo are connected to a rash of vehicle break-ins in Marana, said Gress.

On Thursday shortly after 5 a.m., deputies responded to the 4700 block of West Snowberry Lane for a report of a theft in progress.

The neighborhood is west of North Thornydale Road and north of West Cortaro Farms Road.

Deputies learned that a homeowner saw a man breaking into his car and he chased the man away from his house. During a search of the neighborhood, deputies found a woman riding a bicycle and learned that she was involved in the theft and the man was her boyfriend, Gress said.

A vehicle that both suspects were using was found in the neighborhood, and the boyfriend was taken into custody near the vehicle. Deputies found items in the vehicle that appeared to have been stolen from residences in the area, said Gress.

PHOENIX \u2014 The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has released video of a naked Mesa woman who stole a deputy's vehicle and led authorities on a 70-mile pursuit that ended near Eloy.

The video released Thursday blurs the body of 31-year-old Lisa Ann Luna from her neck to her feet.

\n

Luna told authorities she was on drugs and took off her clothes while walking along a road in Gila Bend on Jan. 5.

The video shows the deputy taking a blanket out of the truck and trying to give it to Luna to cover herself up.

By then, she is behind the wheel and has apparently locked the driver's side door.

Luna is shown driving off with the deputy being thrown to the pavement.

She remains jailed on suspicion of several felony charges.
