The FBI raided a Catholic Worker House in Des Moines early Friday in search of evidence linked to efforts to sabotage construction of the Dakota Access pipeline.
About 30 law enforcement personnel, led by agents armed with guns who identified themselves as being from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, entered the Catholic Workers’ Berrigan House just north of downtown Des Moines shortly after 6 a.m., said Frank Cordaro, a former Catholic priest who resides at the house. The agents left about 10:30 a.m. with boxes and sealed bags of property they had seized.
This morning, August 11 2017, over 30 FBI agents raided the Berrigan House, home of Ruby Montoya and Jessica Reznicek. The raid was related to an ongoing investigation into Ruby and Jessica’s peaceful actions against the Dakota Access Pipeline in January.
