Unlicensed Driver Caught Transporting 22 Illegal Arabs

Police early Thursday morning arrested a driver who did not have a license – and was transporting 22 illegal Arab workers in the back of his van. The driver was spotted by traffic police after he crossed a solid white line on a road near Beit Shemesh, and they flagged him down. Instead of stopping, the driver sped up, and a chase ensued. After catching him, police discovered his “contraband cargo.”

The driver was arrested and charged with a variety of crimes, from driving without a license to transporting illegal Arabs to endangering the public welfare.
