Serious crimes more than doubled in the area around Occupy Los Angeles during the first 45 days since the protesters began their encampment, Los Angeles Police Department officials said.

From Oct. 1 to Monday, the LAPD reported 24 arrests for crimes including robbery, theft and aggravated assault, reports the Los Angeles Times.

The LAPD reported a total of 102 arrests compared to 60 during the same 45-day period in 2010.

Of those, many included offenses such as disorderly conduct, drug violations, public drunkenness and lewd acts, according to the Times.

Representatives from Occupy L.A. plan to file a court motion for a temporary restraining order to prevent police from dismantling their encampment around City Hall without providing notice.
