More than 100 arrests as pipeline protesters moved

Posted:

CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) -- Authorities say more than 100 people have been arrested during an operation to force Dakota Access pipeline protesters off private land.

Donnell Hushka, a spokeswoman for the Morton County, North Dakota, Sheriff's Department, says as of 8:15 p.m. Thursday there have been 117 protesters arrested.

She says Morton County will be using other jails to house people. She says those arrested for misdemeanors can bond out, but those facing felonies will have to be held for initial court appearances.

Hushka says the possessions of those arrested are being collected and protesters can identify the belongings and claim them later.
