Three teens accidentally entered Mar-a-Lago with AK-47

Mar-a-Lago

Palm Beach police told the Post that the teens, all 15-year-old boys, were arrested not long after they entered the grounds of the property, which is now closed, and after they disposed of the backpack, which contained a Mini Draco 7.62 caliber AK-47 with a loaded magazine.

Apparently the boys seemed unaware of their location, with authorities describing their trespassing on the grounds of the president's Florida home as inadvertent and not targeting Trump.

Three teenagers are accused of jumping a wall to get into President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.

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.

As they approached the club, the teens spotted a second officer who was conducting an unrelated traffic stop and abruptly stopped the vehicle, probably thinking it was a roadblock set up to catch them, Ogrodnick said.

"They had no idea where they were", Ogrodnick said, adding that they were lucky that Trump's family was not there, as they might otherwise have been shot by the Secret Service.

The police spokesman said it was accidental that the teens ended up at the president's club, and that they did not know where they had run into. They claim they found the loaded weapon, and as of Wednesday police have no leads on its owner.

The teen trio were charged with armed trespassing, armed burglary, and resisting arrest without violence. The State Attorney's Office has yet to decide whether they will face felony charges as adults.

On January 31, a CT opera singer fleeing police in a rented SUV crashed through a checkpoint outside of Mar-a-Lago, drawing gunfire from Secret Service agents and officers. She was arrested without being harmed, and has pled not guilty to the charges against her by reason of insanity. The three never attempted to enter Mar-a-Lago's buildings.

In March 2019, Chinese national Yujing Zhang gained access to Mar-a-Lago while carrying a laptop, phones and other electronic gear.
