ADVERTISEMENT

Police in St. Maarten have arrested three men who tried to enter the country on Saturday (Nov. 14) with fake Greek passports, according to a police department news release.

The men, believed to be Syrian, have been detained. They arrived at the Princess Juliana International Airport about 7:30 p.m. on an Insel Air flight originating from Haiti.

Police urged residents of both the Dutch and French sides of the island “to be vigilant and proceed with caution given the current situation unfolding in France,” the statement said.

A press statement from Minister of Justice Dennis Richardson on Monday said there were no indications of planned acts of terrorism in St. Maarten.
