The anti-immigrant Arpaio is a Fox News favorite.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies served search warrants throughout the county Tuesday morning and made a series of arrests as part of an investigation involving at least three Maricopa County Sheriff’s employees suspected of being involved in human and drug smuggling operations.

An officer at the scene where one of the warrants was served confirmed to a 12 News reporter that the operation involved a Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputy suspected of smuggling drugs or humans.

The targets of the investigation, conducted by a task force of state and local agencies, include a Sheriff’s deputy and a pair of detention officers.
