MCSO Makes 28 Arrests In Bread Factory Bust

Associated Press

July 15, 2011

PHOENIX — Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies arrested at least 28 people for allegedly using false identification documents to get jobs at a Mesa bread factory.

The arrests were made after deputies executed a search warrant Thursday morning at the Alpine Valley Bread Company.

Approximately 50 to 60 employees were working inside the bakery when the raid occurred and had arrested 28 of them by late Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say 26 of the 28 people arrested were believed to be illegal immigrants with the other two being U.S. citizens with outstanding warrants.

The names of those arrested weren’t immediately released.

The Arizona Republic says the Sheriff’s Office had been investigating the factory for the past 2½ months.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio declined to comment on how the agency was tipped off to the factory.
