Mine protester charged with theft released on bond
Protester made initial appearance Monday in Hurley
A woman accused of stealing a camera from a mine worker in northern Wisconsin as she protested Gogebic Taconite's mining plans has been released on a signature bond.
Twenty-six-year-old Katie Kloth, of Stevens Point, made an initial appearance in Iron County Circuit Court Monday afternoon when a $5,000 signature bond was set.
Kloth is charged with robbery by use of force and three misdemeanors. Kloth was involved in a June 11 confrontation with mine workers at the site of Gogebic Taconite's proposed mine near Lake Superior.
