Police: Teens break into CNN, use Facebook


ATLANTA,None - Two unauthorized teenagers were caught using Facebook in the CNN’s downtown Atlanta newsroom Thursday night, police said.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said CNN security officials alerted Atlanta police that two men were using computers in the newsroom. Jones said they climbed over a ledge from the Omni hotel, which is inside the CNN center, and jumped down.

“At the time of arrest, they were checking their Facebook pages on those computers,” Jones said.

She said the computers were not password protected.

Aldayne Fearon, 18, and Francis Mutemwa, 19, were arrested and charged with criminal trespass. Jones said they had no form of identification on them and had no records on file. She said they initially hid their identifications but later gave their names.

The pair drove to the hotel in Mutemwa’s mother’s Mercedes, Jones said. She said the car was towed away from the scene.
