Federal authorities arrested 12 illegal aliens after they stormed a Southern California beach in broad daylight and fled into the local community.
A total of 14 suspects were apprehended by federal agents, who also discovered nearly five pounds of methampetamine and a non-serialized AR-style rifle, referred to as a “ghost gun.”
The incident, which took place at Stone Steps Beach in Encinitas on the morning of August 24th, was captured on on video.
