Police have detained two local men along with ten suspected illegal immigrants after they were intercepted by the Point Fortin Municipal Police Task Force (PFMPTF) on Friday morning.

Police said around 1 am today, officers assigned to the PFMPTF were patrolling along the South Central Road when they observed three vehicles being driven in a convoy-like manner.

The municipal police officers intercepted the cars.

Upon investigating officers noticed that some of the passengers in the vehicles were speaking a foreign language and appeared to have entered the country illegally.

Investigations are ongoing into their immigration status.
