PRESIDIO COUNTY, TX (KWES) - Two Trans-Pecos Pipeline protesters were arrested Saturday morning at a construction site south of Marfa.

Authorities arrested Loretta Glover, 36. She's charged with felony interference with public gas supply and misdemeanor trespassing.

Ronald Scisert, 36, is charged with trespassing.

A female minor was also arrested for criminal trespassing and has since been released.

Protesters argue that the pipeline will damage drinking water and say it runs through Native land.
