Roanoke County Police on Wednesday charged two individuals in connection with protests against Mountain Valley Pipeline activities in Bent Mountain.

According to police, Stephanie Stallings Davis, 37, of Winston-Salem, NC was charged with Interfering with Property Rights. Police say Davis was interfering with permitted construction activities.

Zakaria Ismael Kronemer, 24, of Silver Spring, MD was arrested due to an outstanding warrant for providing false identification to law enforcement as a result of an incident in Bent Mountain on Monday, April 9, police say.

Police say there were approximately 12-15 individuals, both local and from out of the area, in opposition of the pipeline activity Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the department says officers described the contact as "civil, with no threats of violence or serious issues".
