BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Authorities have charged four men in two separate deer poaching incidents late last year in or near the camp in southern North Dakota that housed Dakota Access pipeline protesters.

The state Game and Fish Department says charges of unlawful possession of big game have been filed against men from New Hampshire and Idaho and two men from New York. Arrest warrants have been issued for all four suspects, none of whom is believed to be in North Dakota.

Authorities are still trying to identify other suspects.

The charge against the men is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $3,000 fine.
