Lufkin, TX (KETK) — Three men affiliated with the controversial Church of Wells have been issued criminal trespass warnings by Lufkin Police after they were found to be on school property.

Lufkin ISD officials told KETK on Friday that a school employee noticed the men on school property and approached them. After speaking with the men, the employee notified the district of their presence and law enforcement was called.
Details about their reason for being on campus were not immediately available.
According to Lufkin Police, a criminal trespass warning is confirmation that a person was told by a property owner that they were prohibited from returning to the property.
There has not been any violation of the law, and school officials tell KETK that the men left the property without incident.
Sheila Adams, Director of Communications & Public Relations at Lufkin ISD, said, "The Lufkin Police Department responded to the situation. District police and administrators were on the scene. The incident was resolved with minimal disruption due to the fact that students were already released from school. Our district police department will be closely monitoring our campuses to ensure the safety of our students."
The warning was issued campus-wide.
Unless any of the men return to the property, there will be no legal action taken against them.
