Default Spiney mole crab?

I caught a weird looking creature at johnsons beach that kinda looked like a sand flea with pinchers and a tail like a horseshoe crab. The only thing i could find like it on the internet was spiney mole crabs. Has anyone else seen these, are they common to the area?

May have been a male sand flea (aka mole crab). Look it up and let me know.
