In the early hours of this morning, 25 Venezuela nationals were detained by police in Santa Flora for illegal entry into T&T.
Officers on an anti-crime exercise received information that several illegal immigrants disembarked a vessel at Mahawal Beach and boarded two vehicles.
Police intercepted the vehicles with the foreign nationals along SS Erin Road near the NP Quikshoppe.
The drivers, a 29-year-old man from Siparia and a Venezuelan made living in Trinidad, were also detained.
After a medical examination, they were all housed at the Santa Flora and Erin Police Stations and are due to be taken to the Coast Guard base at the Heliport in Chaguaramas.
