Illegals; Terrorist Caught Breaching Marine Base

( – After thwarting an attempted break-in at a Marine installation in Virginia, the Marine Corps arrested a terrorist and an illegal who were later handed over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The incident occurred at the Fuller Road Gate of Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. According to spokesperson Capt. Michael Curtis, the two individuals attempted to enter the base’s premises in a box truck.

Curtis explained, “When asked, the operator of the truck informed the military police officers they worked for a company subcontracted by Amazon and were making a delivery to the U.S. Post Office located in the Town of Quantico.”

Despite their claims, the pair lacked proper credentials to access the military facility. They were directed to a holding area for standard vetting procedures but the driver attempted to bypass this step and enter the base instead.

Officers’ quick action activated vehicle denial barriers, stopping the truck and allowing the pair to be detained without any injuries.

The Marine Corps later handed the two individuals over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which has not provided additional details about their identities or status yet.

“When any vehicle and its occupants fail to comply with the clear direction of the on-duty Police Officers, specific steps are taken by those officers to restrict any further access,” Curtis stated. “Those actions by our on-duty Police officers helped maintain the safety and security of all who live and work on Marine Corps Base Quantico.”

Unnamed sources revealed that the attempted entry raised concerns that one of the individuals was a Jordanian national who had recently entered the U.S. from the southern border, and one of them was on the U.S. government’s terrorist watch list.

Located near Washington, D.C., Marine Corps Base Quantico houses significant military and federal operations, including the Corps’ Combat Development Command and facilities used by the FBI and other key federal agencies.

This is not the first instance of security breaches at Marine installations, as similar incidents have occurred in the past.

A fiery crash at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and an unauthorized entry at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms saw the deployment of vehicle denial barriers and prompt responses by military police.
