9 Arrests in Morning Follow Busy Court Night

WATKINS GLEN, Dec. 4 -- Nine protesters were arrested Thursday morning at the gates of the Crestwood energy firm alongside Rt. 14, just a few hours after a long session Wednesday night in Reading Town Court.

The court session -- with 19 trespass cases related to the ongoing protest against Crestwood's plan to store methane, propane and butane in abandoned salt caverns west of Seneca Lake -- saw six people jailed for refusing to pay fines, although one, given a one-day sentence, was released hours later.

Thursday's arrests brought to 92 the number of arrests at the Crestwood sites since Oct. 29. Charged with trespass were Pete Angie, 34, of Trumansburg; Catherine Johnson, 52, of Ithaca; Margaret McCasland, 68, of Lansing; Kerry Angie, 62, of Aurora; Timothy Dunlap, 60, of Hector; Shirley Barton, 66, of Mecklenburg; Daryl Anderson, 61, of Hector; Kirsten Pierce, 44, of Burdett; and Rosalie Richter-Goldberg, 70, of Ithaca.
