Teen Makes His Way To The Top Of 1 World Trade Center

NEW YORK (AP) _ A 16-year-old boy is accused of bypassing security and climbing to the top of 1 World Trade Center to take pictures. 

A Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman says the teen was arrested at 6 a.m. Sunday and charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass. 

The spokesman, Joe Pentangelo, says the teen got on the construction site of nearly completed tower through a small fence opening. He then allegedly entered the tower by climbing scaffolding.

 Pentangelo says the teen eluded a guard on the 104th floor. The guard has since been fired. 

Port Authority arrested the teen on the premises. His camera and cellphone were seized after authorities obtained a search warrant.

  

The investigation is continuing
