PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. -

One of four passengers in a vehicle pulled over for a traffic stop on Sunday has already been deported 14 times.

A Pinal County Sheriff's K-9 deputy stopped a car on I-10 for a traffic violation.

Inside the car was a driver and three passengers, all of whom told deputies they are in the US illegally and don't have driver's licenses.

PCSO says the deputy could smell marijuana coming from the inside of the car.

The driver, 23-year-old Cesar Martinez, told the deputy he had just purchased the car that day.

One of the passengers, 33-year-old Tomas Rivera-Flores, allegedly claimed he had already been deported from the US 14 times.

Border Patrol confirmed Rivera-Flores' claims.

PCSO says their K-9 checked the vehicle and confirmed the car was used to transport marijuana, but there wasn't any inside during the traffic stop.

All four people were turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol for deportation.
