Agents with the VCTF received information and saw videos on social media of a large group of people waving rifles and handguns in the air in the 2000 block of East Ridge Circle East. Officers arrived in the area and made contact with several individuals.
Their investigation led to the arrest of the following individuals for the following charges:

Henson Pierre, 20, of Boynton Beach for carrying a concealed firearm.
