Three men were charged with Defiant Trespassing after being caught swimming in Ginny Duenkel Pool after pool business hours on June 15th.

Jose Urrita, 21, of Ashland Avenue, Dany Alves, 22, of Dean Street and Nelson Menjibar, 19, of Lakeside Avenue in Orange were observed swimming in the pool by Recreation Department Director Bill Kehoe, who then detained the offenders until police arrived on the scene. The three admitted they had jumped the fence to enter the pool. They were placed into custody and transported to the West Orange Police Department without incident.

“Trespassing at the pool is a serious crime,” said Kehoe. “We want to make it clear that offenders will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
