ALQBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The city of Albuquerque has removed large rocks from downtown landscaping nearly three months after a Donald Trump rally turned violent.

KOAT-TV in Albuquerque reports (http://goo.gl/dEp6rL) city officials recently purged the stones and replaced them with smaller rocks.

The move came after protesters hurled rocks at officers and police horses outside a Trump rally at the Albuquerque Convention Center in May. Downtown businesses also suffered damages, including broken windows.

Albuquerque Chief of Staff Gilbert Montana says crews removed six truckloads of large stones throughout Downtown Albuquerque, including near the Convention Center.

Montano said officials also found the rocks were being used to hide drugs and syringes.
