Failed police filter stop leads to chase and detainment of 11 from Brazil

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Solidaridad authorities have detained 11 illegal migrants after the driver of their SUV refused to stop a Playa del Carmen police filter. The Secretariat of Public Security and Municipal Transit of Solidaridad located the seven adults and four minors from Brazil in a private SUV Friday night.

The suburban was requested to pull over at the Cancun-Playa del Carmen northern police filter Friday evening, but the driver ignored the request, which resulted in a large police pursuit.

Police chased the vehicle through Playa del Carmen where it was finally intercepted near El Palomar. The 11 people from inside, and the driver, were taken into custody.
