Teens allegedly break-in to Teeterboro and steal ATV
NEW JERSEY (WABC) -- A big security scare at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey after three teens stole an ATV with a flatbed and took off on it.
A security breach there is no different than at a bigger airport.
Sometime Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the perimeter was breached by three teens in what seems to be a prank, but no one is laughing.
Unfortunately it was too easy for the three teens. The fence has some barbed wire, But they used bolt cutters to cut through this section of fence, allegedly stole a John Deere Gator.
They drove it through the opening in the fence and then through the woods.
The area has no security cameras and just a common padlock on the gate.
Surrounded by trees, it's secluded so no one could see the teens as they broke in.
But it wasn't hard to find them after. The gator left tracks, and Port Authority police followed them right to the home where one of the teens lives.
Someone was home, but wouldn't come to the door.
A Port Authority spokesperson said over the phone, "We take this very seriously. We want to see them prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law".
