The head of security at 1 World Trade Center has resigned in the wake of a series of embarrassing breaches at the high-profile tower in New York City.

David Velazquez's departure was announced Friday, days after three skydiving enthusiasts, who parachuted off the nation's tallest skyscraper in September, were arrested. It also comes almost two weeks after authorities say a New Jersey teenager was able to sneak onto the site, climb to the top of the 1,776-foot tower and take pictures.

The New York Post reports he was forced out.

Spokesman Jordan Barowitz said The Durst Organization took over security of the tower in January. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey controls the site and is responsible for security around the perimeter.

Velazquez, former director of the FBI field office in Newark, N.J.,  couldn't immediately be reached for comment, The Associated Press said.
