31 illegal Venezuelans have been held along the Los Iros Beach.
Around 11:55am yesterday, police were alerted to a large group breaching the border along the beach in Santa Flora.
Responding officers intercepted two vehicles carrying the 31 Venezuelans – 13 females and 18 males.
The drivers were two Trinidadian men, ages 36 and 61, who are now assisting the investigation.
All parties have been taken into quarantine following which charges are expected to be laid against the local men.
The immigrants meanwhile will be returned to their homeland.
