ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A political merchandise company says it lost thousands of dollars during an anti-Donald Trump protest that turned violent in the Albuquerque.

Greg Richards of The Political Mint told KRQE-TV in Albuquerque (https://goo.gl/khUvml ) this week that more than $2,000 in merchandise was stolen then burned during the riot last month.

He says after protesters broke through police barricades set up at the Albuquerque Convention Center, vendors’ merchandise stands were ransacked.

Richards says those who stole items should be prosecuted.

The city of Albuquerque announced last week that businesses have donated $12,000 in reward money to arrest those involved in the anti-Trump protest that turned violent.

Albuquerque police made three arrests last week and authorities say more are coming.
