Two of three Jamaicans who were arrested and charged with unlawful entry in the Turks and Caicos Islands are facing deportation.
They were held after a marine branch team intercepted a vessel south of Providenciales on August 30.
According to the TCI Sun newspaper, a large sum of cash was found during a search of the boat.
The Jamaicans appeared before the Magistrate's Court on September 6 on a charge of unlawful entry.
Two of them pleaded guilty and were fined $1,500.
They remain in custody at a detention centre.
The third Jamaican pleaded not guilty and is to return to court.
