PALM BEACH, Fla. Three teenagers were arrested after police said they illegally scaled a wall at President Donald Trumps Mar-a-Lago club while carrying an AK-47 in a backpack, authorities said Wednesday.
According to Palm Beach Police Department spokesperson Michael Ogrodnick, the boys were arrested shortly after entering the property. They had dumped a backpack, which contained the semiautomatic weapon that had a loaded 14-round magazine.
They had no idea where they were, Ogrodnick told the Miami Herald. Content Continues Below
The president and his family were not at the club, which is closed for the summer, Ogrodnick said.
According to a police report, on Friday night the teens, who have not been identified, were observed parked in a silver Hyundai around midnight Friday, WPTV reported.
When police approached the vehicle, it sped away. It was observed moments later by another officer, who was conducting an unrelated traffic stop, WPEC reported.
After a short pursuit, the teens left the Hyundai and ran toward Mar-a-Lago, where they illegally entered the property.
The teens hid on the resorts grounds. Officers surrounded the area and a helicopter and police dog were used to find them, the Herald reported.
The teens were charged with trespassing with a firearm, burglary with a firearm and resisting arrest without violence, the newspaper reported.
The boys are being held at the Juvenile Assessment Center in West Palm Beach, WPTV reported. Prosecutors are deciding whether to charge the teens as adults, according to the Herald.

AK-47’s are expensive.
Where do ‘teens’ get them? They must be cheap there.........................
If this had been on property of a democrat President, the media would already be calling the young men right wing terrorists.
Because it was Maralago, the article has a slight air of martyrdom
They were armed.
They had no idea where they were.
They sped away from police when confronted.
Why do I not think the police are being fully transparent here?
And how old were these teens?
What were they wearing? Black with red flags?
Because we give them to them by leaving them in the truck.
Happens all the time.
Palm Beach Police Department spokesperson Michael Ogrodnick: They had no idea where they were,
I hear Mr. Ogrodnick is shopping for a bridge.
They had no idea where they were.
Place your bets: Muslim Youth, MS-13 or recruited by Antifa?
Maybe they were out shining gators......
How often is 10-20-Life actually implemented in Florida?
Florida’s 10-20-Life law is a law that requires courts to impose a minimum sentence of 10 years, 20 years, or 25 years to life for certain felony convictions involving the use or attempted use of a firearm or destructive device. If the firearm is an assault weapon or machine gun, they must impose a sentence of 15 years, 20 years, or 25 years to life. The penalty is in addition and consecutive to the sentence for the underlying felony conviction (Fla. Stat. § 775.087).
Courts must impose the mandatory minimum sentences in convictions for committing or attempting to commit any of the following felonies, regardless of whether the use of the weapon was an element of the crime:
2. sexual battery;
6. aggravated assault;
7. aggravated battery;
10. aircraft piracy;
11. aggravated child abuse;
12. aggravated abuse of an elderly person or disabled adult;
13. unlawful throwing, placing, or discharging of a destructive device or bomb;
15. home invasion robbery;
16. aggravated stalking;
17. drug trafficking and capital importation of cocaine and other illegal drugs; and
18. possession of firearm by a felon.
Yet another “coinkydink”. Put nothing past leftists...nothing. They are integrity-free, morality -free losers bent on disruption and destruction. You may not think people like this exist, but they do. It is estimated that approximately 3-4% of the population are psychopaths. Look that up. Let that sink in.
> They had no idea where they were. <
Makes sense to me. Because when I get lost, I try to climb over walls, scale fences, etc. And I do it fully armed.
Racist signaling that the boys were white and not black. Had they been black, “boys” would be a racial slur.
and I’ll bet their video game of choice has an “instant message” app built into it ..with some “interesting/incriminating” IM’s....
Things I learned from watching the now-banned “Cops” show.
“I don’t know whose car this is (that I’m driving)”.
“I don’t know any of the people in my car”
“I haven’t been drinking (snorting, smoking crack, whatever”)]
Now add “I have no idea where I am”
it sounds like they were foreign teens, Somalis perhaps?
who are adults at 10 lol
not white, African tribe.
