Posted at 8:33 PM, Feb 28, 2017

Law enforcement officers have detained a suspect wanted in connection with a series of crimes Monday.

The suspect believed to have been responsible fora kidnapping, carjacking and armed robbery in Wintersburg and Tonopah has been identified as Albert Campos. 

On Tuesday, investigators tracked the suspect to a vehicle near Goodyear.

Campos failed to stop when deputies attempted to pull it over, starting a pursuit westbound on Interstate 10.

Campos and a woman bailed out of the vehicle near Palo Verde and Southern, according to a release from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities set up a perimeter around a dairy in that area, and the suspect was taken into custody without incident.

The woman is considered a person of interest in the case, but officials said there are no charges for her arrest.
