Three 15-year-old boys have been arrested after illegally entering Trump’s winter White House Mar a Lago today.
The scary part is what the cops found on in their backpack after a short chase – a Mini Draco 7.62 caliber and AK-47. The kids told the cops they “found” the guns and they are currently in custody. They were being chased by police and may not have known they were at Trump’s place.
Palm Beach Police spokesman Michael Ogrodnick said, “Honestly, I really don’t believe they even realized where they were in terms of location and proximity to Mar-a-Lago,”
From The Palm Beach Post: Three 15-year-old boys are in custody after police said they jumped the wall into Mar-a-Lago after fleeing from police. They had a backpack which contained a Mini Draco 7.62 caliber AK-47, police said.
Three teenagers were charged with armed trespassing, armed burglary and resisting arrest without violence after they fled police officers and jumped a wall into Mar-a-Lago with an AK-47 concealed in a backpack, according to Palm Beach Police.
The 15-year-old boys were seen by police parked in a silver Hyundai around midnight Friday in the 300 block of Middle Road with the daytime running lights on, the report said.
When officers approached, the driver sped away toward South Ocean Boulevard, with the car’s headlights turned off.
A second police vehicle attempted to stop the Hyundai on South Ocean Boulevard, but the suspects abruptly stopped the car near the Southern Boulevard Bridge and ran toward President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, the report said.
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.
The teens were eventually caught inside the property and taken into custody on charges of armed trespassing, armed burglary, and resisting arrest without violence.
According to police, when the teens were asked where they got the AK-47 from, one of them said he had “found it.”
