A crew of Filipino laborers pulled up to this New Haven dock to make a delivery… and ended up detained in a local motel as witnesses after crying foul aboard their oil tanker. Authorities are holding the tanker on a $1 million bond on suspicion of illegal dumping into U.S. waters.

The crew of M/T Kriton glided up to the Magellan T-Dock in New Haven’s port one chilly evening in March. The vessel, a 606-foot oil tanker rusting from its 16 years at sea, had been making stops along the U.S. coast.
