The Grand Junction Police Department is looking for the protestors who ran in front of Sarah Palin's motorcade Monday evening, endangering themselves and officers.

Police consider the actions the protestors took as criminal, as they had previously been told by officers how to lawfully protest, ordering them to stay on the sidewalk. The act also posed a security threat to the Governor and her motorcade, as officers say they had no idea what the protestors' intentions were, or if they planned to harm anyone.

Arrests were not initially made because the officer involved had to immediately return to their positoins in teh motorcade. Police have collected several pieces of video and evidence in this incident, but are asking for the public to submit any pictures or video they have to assist police with their investigation.
