Man charged with peeing in elevators

New Jersey police said they used surveillance cameras to identify and arrest a suspect who has allegedly been urinating in elevators of two medical buildings.

Investigators said Antonio Vega, 51, was charged with criminal mischief and given a $2,000 elevator repair bill after cameras set up in two Plainsboro buildings owned by Sharbell Development Corp. captured him urinating in elevator cars, the Trenton (N.J.) Times reported Tuesday.

Police said Vega, who has allegedly been relieving himself in the elevators since June, works as a laboratory service representative and frequently visits the two buildings to pick up blood and urine samples.

Vega was released on his own recognizance, police said.
