    Coast Guard Interceptor Boat

    34 Venezuelans including three children and three babies were caught trying to enter Trinidad in a pirogue early on Thursday morning.

    The T&T Coast Guard says around 12:14am, the pirogue named Don Cirilo was intercepted north-west of Carrera Island.

    They were escorted to Staubles Bay where 30 blocks of cheese and a sack of avocadoes were found on board.

    All persons on board were served with rejection orders and were sent back to their homeland.

    The same boat was intercepted on November 2nd trying to bring Venezuelans into Trinidad, and they too were rejected.

    This is the fourth interception in the past two weeks by the T&T Coast Guard.
