MIAMI - Authorities detained three men who were caught Sunday trying to slip past security at the Port of Miami, an FBI spokeswoman said.

A truck driver raised suspicions when he made inconsistent statements at the port’s delivery entrance, FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said.

“At some point he said he was alone,” she said.

However, police stopped the truck and found two more men in the truck cab, she said.

The men, all of Middle Eastern descent, were in the country legally and do not appear on any terrorist watch list, Orihuela said.

There was no immediate threat to the port, but its cargo area was closed while authorities used an X-ray machine to search the truck, Orihuela said.

This developing story will be updated.
