Police continue controls/ 3 stolen vehicles
On Wednesday January 20th around 05.00 p.m. the Multi Disciplinary Team held a control on the Union Farm road Leading to the so-called 911 Project.
During this general control numerous cars were stopped and controlled. As a result of this control three cars and one scooter were confiscated. The cars were confiscated based on the fact that the VIN-numbers on these vehicles were tampered with which is an indication that they were probably stolen. The rider of the scooter could not show any documents of ownership.
The vehicles were towed to a safe location to be investigated by the Forensic Department. The owner/drivers of these vehicles were summoned to report to the Police Department to give a complete statement in connection with the further investigation.
Three illegal men arrested
On Wednesday January 20th at approximately 05.30 p.m. three men of Brazilian nationality were arrested in the Indigo Bay area by the Multi Disciplinary team.
The arrest took place after the Emergency Dispatch directed the team to that location shortly after the call that four suspicious men with bags in their hands were in the Cape Bay area towards Indigo bay.
Three of these men were arrested after trying to escape from the team. The fourth man escaped and is still at large.
The men in question were brought to the Philipsburg Police Station for further investigation. The Immigration and Border Protection Services will take over the investigation.
