Four more protesters arrested at Mt. Tabor Park

Four people were arrested overnight in Mt. Tabor Park protesting the city's plan to replace the open reservoirs there with underground storage tanks.

A total of 7 people have now been arrested for trying to camp or put up protest signs in the park since Sunday.

The four arrests began just after midnight on Tuesday, July 16. They were arrested for refusing to leave the park after it officially closed. Police say the four indicated they were willing to be arrested rather than leave the park. The four arrests occurred without incident.

Jonilka Calcano, 21, Pablo Mark Avvacato, 19, Joanna Michal Nordness, 30, and Robert Ziggy Walker, 20, were arrested for Criminal Trespass in the Second Degree. Avvacato, Nordness and Walker were also charged with Interfering With a Peace Officer.

Calcano was a reported missing person from Rhode Island. None of the four provided a Portland address. All four were booked into the Multnomah County Jail.
