Six women held, suspected of being illegal immigrants

Six women were among 14 persons held in the Woodbrook community during a police exercise on Thursday under suspicion of being illegal immigrants.

The suspects, who are between the ages of 21 and 52, were held during a police exercise by officers of the Port of Spain Division led by Snr Sup Ramdeen, and including Insp Deonarine, Sgt Tooleram, Sgt Bharath, WPC Wickham, PC ORR, PS Simons, and PC Nanan, among others.

The officers received intelligence on Thursday afternoon which led them to a home in Woodbrook, which was searched.

The 14 individuals were unable to provide the police with proper documentation for their legal stay in this country and as a result, they were all detained.

Officials from the Immigration Division were notified and are continuing inquiries.

More on this as it becomes available.
