Migrants were detained after a police chase in Plovdiv
11 young men traveling in a minivan, as well as their driver, were detained in Plovdiv this morning. This was announced by the police and the District Prosecutor's Office.
The incident took place this morning at 8:20 a.m. on one of the city's busiest boulevards. A patrol from the 6th Regional Office spotted a minivan in traffic with a darkened rear window and a visibly loaded interior. Officers immediately checked and found that the license plates did not match the vehicle. This gave the police officers a reason to signal for a stop, but the driver did not obey - reported the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Plovdiv - Vasil Kostadinov.
The minibus went along two boulevards before the motor patrol stopped it.
Upon checking, the officers found that the car was being driven by a Syrian citizen, and there were 11 other men inside who identified themselves as Syrians.
All individuals are detained at the Fourth District Office, and the driver will be charged. He has a humanitarian status and has an address registration in Plovdiv.
He did not resist the arrest.
