HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – On any given weeknight in Harrisburg, people make their way home after work. But one couple went to the roof of the federal building.
“Oh my gosh. That’s bold,” said Tyler Hinson of Harrisburg.
“It makes me feel like I’m kind of boring,” said a lady in downtown Harrisburg.
They are reacting to a couple caught in the act on top of the federal building. The person who sent the pictures to abc27 News said she has seen the couple on the roof more than once, after hours. The witness came to abc27 News because she is afraid there is a security risk. People out for happy hour didn’t seem too concerned.
“I don’t see that as a security risk unless these people are looking for a unique and new way to find security breaches,” said Ben Stone from North Carolina.
John Sancenito, president of Information Network Associates, said there is security 24-7 at the federal building. He thinks it is highly unlikely the couple slipped security to get inside. However, Sancenito sid there is still cause for concern.
“In that typically a lot of the utilities for the building are on the roof so having unrestricted access to a roof area can put the building in jeopardy of having someone sabotage utilities for the building,” Sancenito said.
Aancenito also said there is potential for even more sabotage in the form of blackmail.
“If they have access to a confidential or restricted area and they’re filmed or photographs were taken of them in a compromising situation, that can be used to other individuals to exploit them or do other things that they wouldn’t ordinarily do,” said Sancenito.
Abc27 News told federal investigators about this situation. They will decide if there is a security risk.
