LAHAD DATU: Police detained eight Filipino men in a speedboat as they tried to enter the Ops Daulat operation area at midnight on Thursday.
Sabah police commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib (pix) said the men, aged between 17 to 29 years, were detained in the Sungai Bilis area at 12.15am.
"When the boat was searched, we found they were carrying 300 empty jerrycans and 369,000 pesos (RM28,000).
"No weapons were found with them," said Comm Hamza, adding the men were already being probed for their motive of entering the area.
He also said the men would be investigated under immigration laws as they did not have identification papers on them.
The men could also be investigated under the Security Ordinance and Special Measures Act 2012 if there was any indication they are linked to the Sulu gunmen.
