The men were nationals of Dominica and Haiti who arrived on a motor vessel anchored off the coast in the Gallows Bay area and made their way to the shore using a dinghy.
Officers then accompanied the men to the main vessel, where they found 13 nationals of Haiti – ten adults and three juveniles – onboard.
They are currently detained pending further investigations.
