Lancaster news, Pennsylvania news.

Lancaster authorities have released mugshots of protesters that were arrested on Sunday night amid the civil unrest and said that each of them had his bond set at $1 million.

The twelve suspects are accused of throwing bricks, bottles, and rocks at officers following the police-involved death of a Lancaster man, Ricardo Munoz, who was gunned down while attacking a cop.

Among the arrested are Jessica Lopez, 32; Lee Alexander Wise, 29; Dylan Davis, 28; Taylor Enterline, 20; and Kathryn Patterson, 20.

They were charged with arson, vandalism, rioting, disorderly conduct, and several other offenses.

“Lancaster County District Attorney Heather Adams has leveled heavy charges against the demonstrators and Judge Bruce Roth set bail for each of the accused at $1 million each on Monday night,” a local organization said.

“The absurdly high bail amounts indicate that we’re seeing is not a measured pursuit of justice, but a politically motivated attack on the movement for police reform and accountability.”
