Person detained at Marine Base, transferred to Border Patrol

A person was detained last weekend after attempting to access the Marine Base in Twentynine Palms, and then transferred to agents with Customs and Border Patrol.

On May 5, at around 11:15 a.m., officials with the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center said that an unauthorized person attempted to access the base via the Condor Gate, and was detained. Officials with the base said that the person did not have valid identification, and that they were transferred to Customs and Border Patrol.

Z107.7 has reached out to CBP for further information, though they broadly decline to comment on specific cases.

A social media account associated with US Border Patrol Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino describes the person as a female from the Czech Republic, who was in the United States on an expired visa.

This is the second time this year a non-citizen has been detained while attempting to enter the base without authorization. A man believed to be from China was detained by base personnel and transferred to CBP in March.
