Mayor Bellamy and Council Members,
Lt. Wally Welch with APD was contacted today by the Mountain Xpress and
answered a few questions about APD’s involvement with the Occupy
Asheville group. He shared that to the best of his knowledge no arrests
had been made of people associated with the movement and that the only
interactions had been to advise the group on trespassing laws at the
Federal Building and issues associated with sleeping on sidewalks.
He also shared that the group has been receptive to APD input.
