LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – It has hundreds of followers on its Facebook page, but now the Southside Quarry is part of two police investigations and faces citations by the city. 

Police are looking into a claim against the owner concerning sexual harassment by a woman who was trying to celebrate her friend's birthday. Police said they are asking the County Attorney's Office for a recommendation as to whether charges will be filed. 

Authorities are trying to move the ball forward in regards to other issues the owner faces.

Police tried to serve the owner with a summons Tuesday, but could not locate him. 

The quarry has been cited by the city for operating without the proper permit. City officials said they have not been able to serve the owner. 

The Louisville Metro Police Department has also opened a death investigation after Jarren Stinson, 21, died on June 10, after she fell in the water at the quarry on May 30. The Jefferson County Deputy Coroner confirmed Stinson died from brain hypoxia, or a lack of oxygen to the brain.

Police do not suspect foul play in her death.

WAVE 3 News has made several attempts to contact the owner in the past few months and he has never replied.
