The four men, aged between 20 and 50 years, were arrested in a special operation mounted by a team of policemen from the Sabah Police Special Investigation Department.
According to a police spokesman, the operation which took place in Jalan Lapangan Terbang, five kilometres from Semporna town Wednesday, was aimed at tracking down the intruders currently impersonating villagers in several areas in Semporna.
