Chinese national arrested after trespassing at Mar-a-Lago

Florida police arrested a Chinese national on Wednesday after she allegedly trespassed and took photos at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago property.

Jing Lu, 56, trespassed at the estate and was asked to leave by security, Michael Ogrodnick, a spokesman for the Palm Beach Police Department, said in a statement.

"She returned and began to take photos, at which time the Palm Beach Police Department responded and took her into custody," Ogrodnick said, adding that authorities determined Lu's visa had expired.

Lu invoked her right to an attorney and is being held in Palm Beach County Jail for loitering and prowling, Ogrodnick said.

The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The president is expected to travel to Mar-a-Lago on Friday to kick off a roughly two-week stay for the holidays. He and the rest of the Trump family were not at the property at the time of the incident.

Lu's arrest is the second instance this year of a Chinese national being arrested at Trump's Mar-a-Lago property.

It’s hard to accidentally trespass there.

There’s no sidewalk and you’re essentially gonna have to walk in the street or drive into the property.

I took photos from the street of the place. It was pretty nice but not a place that’s easy to wander onto.

Gosh.

It’s almost like China considers us to be a competitor and is attacking us.

Through the Democrats.

Wasn’t Diane Feinstein’s (Democrat) personal driver a Chinese spy?

Huh.

What do Chi-Coms find so fascinating about Mar-a-Lago? Are they spying for Diane Feinswine?

April 8, 2019

A federal prosecutor argued in court Monday that Yujing Zhang, the Chinese woman arrested trying to enter President Donald Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, “lies to everyone she encounters,” adding that a search of her hotel room uncovered more than $8,000 in cash, as well as a “signal-detector” device used to reveal hidden cameras.

Found in the search: $7,500 in U.S. hundred-dollar bills and $663 in Chinese currency, in addition to nine USB drives, five SIM cards and other electronics, according to federal prosecutor Rolando Garcia. Signal detectors are portable devices that can detect radio waves, magnetic fields and hidden-camera equipment.

Prosecutors are treating the case as a national security matter and an FBI counterintelligence squad is investigating, sources familiar with the inquiry told the Miami Herald.
