Tyendinaga Mohawk police have issued a score of criminal charges on more than a dozen people involved in a pair of protests in the First Nations territory last week.
Eleven adults and two young people have been issued charges in relation to protests occurring on Oct. 27 and Oct. 29 at a private quarry operation and a site where a new police station was to arrive.
Police released the news Thursday, saying at the time that three arrest warrants had been executed. They say more information, including the specific charges for each individual, will be released after all outstanding warrants have been executed.
Those charged for participating in the two protests are:
Chad Douglas Baptiste, 33;
Kathy Anne Baptiste, 48
Jerome Jay Barnhart, 46
Clint Brant, 30
Jacqueline L. Brant, 54
Shawn Michael Brant, 44
Daniel John Doreen, 35
Curtis Fox, 20
Kevin Andrew Maracle, 30
Jason Christopher Maracle, 30
John Trevor Maracle, 33
Two others arrested for their involvement in the protests are under 18 and cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Police also announced they have charged three people for a protest at the private quarry site on Sept. 4. They are George Smart, 55; Peter Laducer, 54; and Wayne Maracle, 65.
On Oct. 28, a group of protesters blocked the York Road site where a new building for Tyendinaga Police Services was to arrive. The protest continued through the next day, until the modular building was shipped away.
