Authorities are asking the public to help them identify more than a dozen masked people who raided a mine drilling site in Iron County in June. They say there is a risk of another raid and violence.

The criminal complaint against a Stevens Point, Wis., woman arrested in the incident detailed threats and profanity against the nine drilling contract operators on June 11. Iron County District Attorney Marty Lipske said a video of the raid released last month depicts someone saying: “Get on the other side and die. I hope you commit suicide.”

“The concern there is their claim that they would be coming back and that there would be more of them,” Lipske said.

He said his office and the sheriff’s office don’t have the resources to conduct a statewide investigation, so he’s asking for the public’s help.

“And if anybody knows the identity of the additional people who were at the mine site on June 11, if anybody knows them they can contact the Iron County Sheriff’s Department,” Lipske said.

Although Gov. Scott Walker personally offered law enforcement help to Iron County, the Department of Justice said no state agency is assisting in this investigation.
