A Leechburg Loyal Order of the Moose leader has been charged with endangering the welfare of children and other crimes for allegedly smoking marijuana with high school students during a Moose-sponsored field trip, state police said.

Police charged Frederick Joseph Ulmer III, 31, of Leechburg in connection with the Nov. 20 incident. Ulmer serves as group administrator, youth awareness chairman and community service chairman with the Moose.

Ulmer is accused of permitting one of the students to smoke pot and later joined that youth and several others in smoking the drug, police said.

The incident happened while Ulmer was driving the students back from a scholarship program in Selinsgrove, police said.

Police also charged a second adult on the trip, Heather Ann Bothell, 33, of East Vandergrift with corruption of minors. It was unclear if she smoked marijuana with the group.
