Two men were arrested Sunday after being intercepted by marine police officers 10 miles off Barkers in West Bay.
The arrests were made after officers on board the police helicopter, which was on patrol, spotted what police described as a “suspicious vessel” – a 35-foot “Go-fast” boat – with two men on board.
The Niven D police vessel was alerted and intercepted the boat. The men on board surrendered to the marine officers, who brought the boat to the police marine base, police said in a press release.
Police said the men were arrested on immigration-related offenses. One of the men is a 31-year-old from West Bay.
Police were trying to determine the nationality of the other man, who is 45.
