LAKE GEORGE — Police arrested four people Saturday for trespassing at a long-closed hotel on Route 9N as they revealed the property's owner has put up a security system because of repeated issues there.
The foursome were found inside the former Lakeview Hotel, which the owner has sought to redevelop after closing it.
The Warren County Sheriff's Office said the owner has put up a surveillance system to monitor activity there because of repeated problems, and Saturday's arrests were the second in recent weeks.
Charged with criminal trespass, a misdemeanor, were Aaron W. Murphy, 20, of Hudson Falls; Tyler M. Alden, 20, of Glens Falls and Brian E. Lawson, 21, of Glens Falls and Dakota J. Hill, 22 of Hudson Falls. They were issued appearance tickets and released.
Warren County records show the hotel is owned by 2451 Route 9N LLC, which is based at 27 Silver Circle in Queensbury. It was under consideration for development into a "destination" outdoors store years ago, but negotiations fell through.
Sheriff's officers Casey Gordon and Terry Combs and department canine RAD handled the case.
