LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Members of Occupy Lawrence are looking for a new site to camp after the city ordered them out of a downtown park.
Lawrence police told the group members Tuesday that they might be arrested and have their gear confiscated if they didn’t move out of South Park.
Police spokesman Sgt. Matt Sarna said police did not encounter any problems while the protesters moved out of the park.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that police cited a city ordinance that bars use of the park from 11:30 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Tuesday evening several members of the group asked the city commission to help them find a city-owned place to camp. Mayor Aron Cromwell said he doubted the city would meet that request.
