Seven illegal immigrants are now in the custody of immigration officers after being detained on Great Thatch early this morning.
Following notification from the US Coast Guard of a suspicious vessel in BVI waters around 4:30am, the Virgin Islands Search and Rescue and officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force responded, and the Joint Task Force was activated.

Six nationals of Cuba and one national of St Kitts and Nevis were detained including a nine-month-old infant.

The 50’ monohull sailboat, believed to be the vessel that transported the seven, was recovered in waters nearby.

Investigations are ongoing in the matter.
