A Haitian Sloop landed off the Marshall Road Ramp early this morning and more than 200 Haitians fled into the bushes.
Only around 10 undocumented Haitian immigrants were brought into custody, the rest have escaped and are unaccounted for.
Police, Defense Force, and Immigration Officers are currently looking for any information on these people and are searching the area to hopefully capture more of the fleeing immigrants.
This is the largest sloop to make it past the Defense Force however, sloops usually get to Bahamian waters every day. Such facts lead to questions such as why are so many Haitian Sloops getting past the Bahamian Defense Force?
