Rocks Shatter Glassy Alcatel-Lucent Building Again

The 2-million square foot structure is targeted by mischief.

A security guard patrolling the vacant Alcatel-Lucent building at 101 Crawfords Corner Road discovered a large glass window in the rear of the building had been shattered by a rock thown at it, probably over the weekend. Broken glass and rocks were found on the ground.

This is the second incident of rock-throwing criminal mischief reported at the facility in recent weeks. Numerous glass window panes were hit on the weekend of April 14-15, causing $10,000 worth of damage, according to the Alcatel-Lucent Property Manager Tom Resetar.

On that occasion, police said there was evidence the vandals had been inside. The building has been unoccupied since 2006, but there is 24-hour surveillance at the complex and security guards patrolling the grounds, according to Resatur. 

While taking the report on Sunday, Holmdel Police were informed of a damaged door with three large indentations, believed to have been caused by by two large rocks that were found nearby. The value of the window is estimated to be $250, and the door $350.

So if there is 24 hr surveillance and patrols, can someone explain HOW this is happening?

Security cameras are a lot less than 10k.

Tony, I couldn't agree with you more. Probably like most 24 hour patrols, the mid-night shift is likely counting sheep most of the time. It's still Lucent that has to do the repairs. Fortunately, it appears that the building won't be vacant for long.
