Marine deputies attempted to stop the vessel to perform a registration check. The vessel had other plans and kept traveling west towards Sandsprit Park. The vessel ultimately stopped and Marine deputies quickly learned that something was off. It was discovered that the vessel had eleven Hispanic males aboard, nine from Brazil and two from Ecuador.

A Coast Guard Cutter responded and took custody of the Immigrants.
