Police: Partying teens trapped in NY walk-in vault

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 08:51 a.m. HST, Aug 16, 2013

FALCONER, N.Y. >> Authorities say four teenagers were apparently partying in a former law office in western New York when they got trapped for several hours in a walk-in vault.

Police say they received a call around 1 a.m. Friday from a person reporting that four people were stuck inside the vault in the village of Falconer, 60 miles south of Buffalo.

Rescue crews and a locksmith went to the building. The locksmith freed the teens, ages 18 and 19, after about four hours. Police say all four were checked out at a hospital.

Officials say the teens had permission to be inside the building. Authorities say they found a large quantity of alcohol and some marijuana on the premises, and charges are pending against the four.
