FORT PIERCE — When U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials spotted a boat 8 miles out in the ocean during the early morning hours Monday, officials decided to investigate.

Neither of the people aboard waved for help.

Officials moved in because the boat lacked registration numbers and identifying marks, which is often a sign that a boat is being used by refugees or drug smugglers.

The occupants, 29-year-old Duncan Curry of North Carolina and a woman, Leah Barreras, would only identify themselves as residents of Earth.

Curry only replied, "I am me," when officials asked his name. Barreras said they live on the boat and they "are man and woman of Earth."

Curry and Barreras were taken to Fort Pierce where Curry was put in the St. Lucie County Jail on a charge of resisting an officer without violence. He resisted when deputies tried to take his fingerprint, according to the affidavit.

The report listed Curry's address as being transient. The woman's status is unknown.

The report did not indicate that any contraband was found on the boat.

well they had probable cause to think they might have been driving an unregistered vehicle, which sometimes means that they might be moving people around, which often is against the current laws, which might change next week.
