Suspected illegal aliens detained

MILTON — Three people believed to be illegal aliens were detained after state police responded to Route 147 south in West Chillisquaque Township to provide winter weather vehicle assistance for them at 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

The three suspects failed to provide acceptable evidence of their legal right to be in the United States, police said.

Officials of the U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement were contacted and determined that all three suspects — Belarmino Diaz, 29, of El Salvador; Martin Mendosa, 35, of Mexico; and Victor Duque, 22, of Mexico — were unlawfully in the country, police said.

Federal customs officers responded to the Milton scene and took the three suspects into custody, police said.
