The Department of Public Safety says 25-year-old Richard Anthony Flores Jr., 25, was arrested on two counts of reckless driving and one count of criminal speed stemming from three separate incidents.

Flores was also served with seven civil speeding citations.

According to DPS, Flores was caught on camera November 11 around 6 p.m. traveling west on the U.S. 60 near Mesa drive at 79 mph while standing through his open sunroof. The posted speed in the area is 65 mph.

Just two minutes later, DPS says Flores was captured again standing through the open sunroof near Alma School Road traveling at 78 mph.

Flores had also been caught on camera November 6 traveling 90 mph on the San Tan Loop 202 near Lindsay Drive, according to officials.

DPS says between October 14 and November 18, Flores' vehicle activated photo enforcement cameras a total of 14 times. Investigators have been able to identify the suspect in eight of the 14 violations at this point.

Officials say Flores has a California license plate on his vehicle with a louvered plate cover in an attempt to obstruct its visibility. He apparently has a California driver's license but investigators discovered that Flores has a local address in Chandler.

When investigators contacted a family member at that address they advised them Flores needed to contact DPS.

Flores apparently called the same day and turned himself in the next morning.
