Three Teens Are Arrested After 46 Car Thefts Near Trump's Mar-a-Lago Resort

Three teens were arrested this past weekend for allegedly stealing 46 of cars in and around tony Palm Beach County, Florida.

The dozens of cars were stolen around the county that is home to Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort. Not only that, but the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office is responsible for providing local security for President Trump when he is visiting Mar-a-Lago.

Fox News, who pointed out the link between this crime and Trump's Mar-a-Lago, reports that a joint task force was created of officers around the Palm Beach County and Broward County Sheriff's offices. This task force witnessed the trio of high school aged boys steal three cars in the gated Saturnia community during a planned surveillance operation.

Authorities claim that the group had been tied to a string of 46 high-end auto thefts. These thefts took place throughout East Boca Raton, Wellington, West Delray, and West Boca Raton, where Saturnia is located.

How these thieves were arrested is fascinating. Apparently, the thieves were seen breaking and entering into a garage and unsuccessfully trying to steal a Jaguar SUV. Afterward, they tried to move to a nearby Porsche Cayenne and BMW 5 Series. They tried to steal these, too, but they failed in their effort.

Police then had the neighborhood locked down and moved in to capture the suspects. But the three car thieves, seeing that police were surrounding them, made a run for it into the nearby Everglades. 

Police then began working with aerial and k-9 units in order to track down the boys and take them into custody, along with the stolen car they had driven into the neighborhood. The Sun Sentinel reports that the stolen car they drove into the neighborhood was a Chrysler 300, which had been reported stolen prior to the incident. 

After being captured, the three teens were booked on several charges — burglary, resisting arrest, crossing county lines with the intent to commit burglary, and grand theft auto. They are currently being held at a juvenile assessment center as a joint investigation into the crimes continues.

After being arrested, the teens refused to talk to detectives, according to the Daily Mail.

Two of the teens are under the age of 18, and as a result, they are expected to appear at a children's court on Tuesday. The 18-year-old man was refused bail and is due to appear at Burwood Local Court on Tuesday.
