FALCONER – Four teens were not seriously hurt after they locked themselves in a vault late last week.
Ellicott Police were called to a home at 19 N. Work St. just after 1 a.m. Friday for a report of subjects being locked inside of a vault. The Falconer Volunteer Fire Department was also called to assist. A locksmith and members of the Jamestown Fire Department were then called, and after several hours the vault was opened and the four juveniles were found inside.
The four teens, who were 18 and 19 years old, were allegedly partying inside the vault. According to a published report, police found both a large quantity of alcohol and some marijuana on the premises. The four were taken to WCA Hospital for evaluation and charges are pending further investigation.
The building where the incident took place used to be the old Town of Ellicott municipal building before it was purchased by the Van Every Law Firm.
