Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said CNN security contacted officers from Zone 5, which is also headquartered in CNN Center, to report that there was “someone in their secure area newsroom.”
18 year old Aldayne Fearon, seen above, and 17 year old Francis Mutemwa, seen below, climbed over a ledge from the Omni Hotel to gain access to the CNN newsroom “and started working on two computers,” Jones said. “At the time of their arrest, they were checking their Facebook pages on those computers.”
The teens initially refused to give officers their names, Jones said, but later relented and identified themselves. They were charged with criminal trespass.
