TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A local woman was arrested for the second time in two weeks on human smuggling charges.

A Pinal County Sheriff's deputy who pulled over 30-year-old Monica Estrada for multiple traffic violations said he recognized her because he arrested her on Nov. 13 for suspected human smuggling.

Police said she drove the same vehicle on Nov. 21 and was pulled over on Interstate 10 near mile marker 209.

Four Hispanic men in the vehicle with Estrada admitted to being in the United States illegally, according to police.

"Monica admitted once again she was smuggling individuals from a house in Tucson but this time instead of taking them to Mesa, she was taking them to a location in Phoenix," Sheriff Paul Babeu stated in a news release. "Monica told the deputy she was getting paid $200 per person, so a total of $800."

U.S. Border Patrol officials apprehended the four individuals for processing and Estrada was booked into the Pinal County Jail for human smuggling.

Her vehicle was also seized.
