Three teens who were running from police while armed with a loaded AK-47 jumped a wall onto President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, according to police, who said that the teens apparently had no idea whose property they had trespassed onto.
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.

Local LE sources tell me this has nothing to do with BLM or ANTIFA.

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.”

A spokesman for the police said the teens didn’t realize they had entered Mar-a-Lago property. Instead, they were trying to evade police and it was pure coincidence that they had ended up at Trump’s club. The teens, whose identities have not been released, are being held at the Juvenile Assessment Center in West Palm Beach.
This isn’t the first time unwelcome visitors have attempted to enter the President’s property.
In February, a 30-year-old Connecticut woman, who has now been identified by police as Hannah Roemhild, drove a black SUV through two security checkpoints at Mar-a-Lago, putting law enforcement on high alert, as previously reported by 100% FED Up. The opera singer from Middletown, CT. allegedly posted anti-Trump images on her Facebook page.
Roemhild was fired at by both Secret Service agents and Palm Beach County deputies.
