Youth gains en­try into cap­tain’s quar­ters of ship


A20-year-old Eric Car­rero of Yonkers, New York, was ap­pre­hended af­ter he was found unau­tho­ris­edly in the cap­tain’s pri­vate quar­ters of a cargo ship, An­dromeda Leader. The US Coast Guard said that Car­rero scaled a fence sep­a­rat­ing a park­ing lot from a se­cure area. De­spite not wear­ing a fed­eral trans­porta­tion worker ID badge—re­quired for all em­ploy­ees in the area—he did not arouse sus­pi­cion un­til the ship’s cap­tain saw Car­rero in his room and called au­thor­i­ties.

Car­rero was charged with un­li­censed en­try of a struc­ture and is un­der­go­ing a psy­chi­atric eval­u­a­tion, au­thor­i­ties said. The Coast Guard has com­pleted an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the breach and found the ship’s se­cu­rity pro­ce­dures were in­ad­e­quate.
