Brnovich said in October of last year Pina absconded during his trial just before a jury found him guilty of the Sale of Dangerous Drugs, Money Laundering, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of Marijuana.

Two months later, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office arrested Pina at a home in Peoria.
