Traffic police stopped a delivery truck in the town of Wieliczka (Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship), which looked like an ambulance. The front seats were occupied by two 28-year-old residents of Warsaw wearing protective coveralls. They transported 18 foreigners who, according to the police, found themselves in Poland illegally.
On Tuesday evening (November 9) in the town of Wieliczki in the Olecki poviat, policemen patrolling the voivodeship road noticed an ambulance coming from the opposite direction. They found the vehicle suspicious and decided to keep the vehicle for inspection.
– The front seats were occupied by two 28-year-olds wearing protective coveralls. It turned out that they were residents of Warsaw. However, they were not health workers at all and did not transport a person infected with coronavirus – says Staff Sergeant Piotr Krat from the Poviat Police Headquarters in Olecko.
Instead of a patient, 18 foreigners
According to the police, there were 18 foreigners of unknown nationality who had found their way into Poland illegally in the cargo area. The car has been secured. Foreigners were handed over to the Border Guard, and detained residents of Warsaw – at the disposal of the prosecutor’s office.
– For helping people to cross the border illegally, men may be imprisoned for up to eight years – emphasizes Krat.
