BENLD - Two federal search warrants were executed Wednesday in Benld, and four male Mexican nationals were taken into custody, authorities said.

Gail Montenegro, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, confirmed the execution of the warrants Wednesday evening.

"As part of an ongoing criminal work site investigation, ICE agents executed search warrants Wednesday at a Benld residence and a restaurant," Montenegro said.

Montenegro declined to release the names of the four male Mexican nationals who were taken into ICE custody Wednesday on suspicion of immigration violations. She said the four would remain in ICE custody while preparations for deportation are finalized.

Montenegro said the search warrants were executed at a Benld residence and at Toni's Family Restaurant, which she said was located at 2630 Staunton Road in Mount Clare. However, Toni's Family Restaurant has a listing on the World Wide Web that shows its street address as 2630 Staunton Road in Benld.
