Nine teens cited at Lower Mt Bethel quarry

Nine teenagers were cited Wednesday after state police found them trespassing in a Lower Mount Bethel Township quarry, Northampton County, Pennsylvania,  that claimed two lives last year.
the Morning Call reports.

The citations took place after troopers found the teenagers at about 4:25pm at the New Enterprise Stone and Lime Quarry, also known as the Eastern Industries Quarry.

The maximum fine for trespassing is $300 plus court costs.

A 22-year-old swimmer died Sunday after rescuers pulled him from an old quarry off Route 611 in Lower Mount Bethel Township, Last year two men died swimming in the Eastern Industries quarry, where state police cited more than 80 people for trespassing. Troopers also cited 40 trespassers last year at quarries near Bangor.

State police said a chain-link fence surrounds much of the 523-acre quarry property in Lower Mount Bethel, and there are plenty of signs to deter trespassers. Some access points have been blocked with walls of cut-down trees and piles of dirt, Cpl. Lucas Lohrman of the state police at Belfast said last month.

But the beauty of the surroundings and the cool, crisp water are very alluring.
