On Sept. 6, sheriff deputies were on Interstates 26 and 95 trying to locate a vehicle suspected in a kidnapping of a female and her daughter. When authorities located the large white van with Texas tags, deputies discovered 17 people inside and none spoke English, according to the incident report.
Upon discovery of the illegal immigrants, the sheriff deputies contacted the U.S. Dept. of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, turning all 17 over to them.
Dorchester County 1st Sergeant Michael Miller says the department got a call about an apparent kidnapping from a citizen after someone saw two women being thrown into a van. He says from what sheriff deputies have found out is the van load of illegal immigrants was being brought into the area, but something happened forcing them back into the van and out of the area.
"This is why it's imperative for citizens to be concerned because without the call, we wouldn't have been able to discover this," Sheriff Ray Nash said. ~Snip~
Sheriff Ray Nash: “I don’t know what happened to them after the feds picked them up, but they at least got deported out of Dorchester County!”
