Bakery Workers Detained in San Diego Immigration Raid
Thursday, May 15, 2008
Federal immigration officials have detained about a dozen people at a French bakery and catering company in San Diego.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lauren Mack says agents executed a criminal search warrant Thursday morning at the French Gourmet, a local institution in a Pacific Beach neighborhood known for its wedding cakes.
Workers in chef's whites and floppy toques were searched in a delivery area behind the restaurant before being taken to a different location for questioning.
Mack says she does not know the nationalities of those detained and declined further comment because the investigation is ongoing.
A message left at the French Gourmet was not immediately returned.
