EASTON, Conn. -- A group of about 20 teenagers spent their Friday the 13th hanging out at Union Cemetery in Easton before police ordered them to leave the area, one of several instances of people being caught trespassing at the cemetery over the weekend.

At around 9 p.m. on Friday, the groundskeeper at the cemetery called police to report the group of 20 teens in the cemetery, police said. Officers arrived, and the teens were issued verbal warnings for simple trespass. About 90 minutes later, a police officer encountered several vehicles at the cemetery, and all people were warned to remain out the area, police said.

Another call reported that there were several cars parked at the cemetery at around 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, and that there was a loud noise coming from the area. Police responded again and issued verbal warnings to each party for simple trespass.

Shortly after midnight on Sunday, an officer on-site encountered a suspicious vehicle parked, unoccupied behind the cemetery, and reported that people were observed inside the cemetery. The officer told the people to leave the area, which they did, police said.
