Teens Lucky To Be Alive After Storming Trump's Mar-a-lago Club With An AK-47
You read that right. Three teens stormed through Trump's Mar-a-Lago club armed with a AK-47 in their backpack. The Pal Beach Florida club is for members only and so the teens now face trespassing charges among other possible charges.
According to a Palm Beach Police Department spokesman, police spotted the teens parked in a silver Hyundai in the 300 block of Middle Road around midnight on Friday.
When officers approached the vehicle, the driver took off.
After a short pursuit, the teens stopped near the Southern Boulevard Bridge, hopped out of the car, and ran toward Mar-a-Lago, according to police.
A police spokesman said Mar-a-Lago security found a backpack on a seawall on the property. Inside was a Mini Draco 7.62 caliber AK-47 with a 14-round magazine.
Police say the teens were arrested without further incident or violence. They now face charges of armed trespassing, armed burglary, and resisting arrest.
When questioned about where they got the AK-47, one of the teens claimed to have 'found it'.
The teens, whose identities will not be released because they are minors, aren't suspected of having any ill intent. A spokesperson for the police department stated that the teens did not even realize they were on the Mar-a-Lago club's property. Adding that they fully believe that the teens ended up on Trump's property purely by mistake.
Lucky to be alive: The Police spokesperson added that they were lucky the president or his family weren't at the club, or they likely would have been shot by the Secret Service. Mar-a-Lago is closed for the summer season.
According to TheBlaze, Mar-a-Lago has been the scene of odd bizarre trespassing incidents prior to the three teens.
In April 2019, a former brothel owner named Cindy Yang was caught trespassing on the property, reportedly while in possession of two Chinese passports and malware.
In January, a Connecticut woman named Hannah Roemhild was arrested after allegedly ramming security checkpoints near the resort as officers gave chase. Her lawyer said that she had mental health issues and had been off of her medications at the time.
