New York, NY - After months of trying to confiscate the information Occupy Wall Street provides to the public on a daily basis, they got their chance when the person responsible for the information table stepped away for a moment, leaving another long-time protester in charge of it.

At 1:10 A.M. Lt. Connelly did a walk-though to inspect for violations of NYPD orders.

After she departed, a group of seven officers led by a sergeant surrounded the area in which the information was stored in milk creates. Sgt. Valentin (badge number 2673) of the 14th precinct asked who the printed material belonged to.

"I know who this belongs to, he'll be right back in a moment," said Chris Phillips.  

The officers tried to confiscate the crates that lay to the left of Phillips. Phillips struggled with the officer for several moments, arguing about the legality of what they were doing as he held on for dear life. In the end he relinquished the crates.  Among the items taken were voter information, pamphlets on O.W.S., other protests going on in the near future and a donation box full of money, donated by supporters who had passed by during the day.

"In the end I had to let go of it, I couldn't get arrested again, I already have one open case pending," said Phillips.
