PAGE, Ariz. -- One man was arrested after more than a dozen people were found trespassing on a houseboat at Lake Powell on Sunday.

Security staff at Antelope Point Marina reported that there were more than 12 people on a docked houseboat who appeared to be using the 65-foot privately owned vessel for illegal activity, according to the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.

A sheriff's deputy and National Park Service rangers responded and identified several people on the houseboat. They determined that the occupants did not have permission to be there.

A 38-year-old man from Page was arrested for trespassing and booked into the Coconino County Jail as a result of the investigation. His name was not released.

The sheriff's office is still investigating the incident.
