ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - Roswell Republicans say hundreds of yard signs in support of Donald Trump have been stolen or vandalized in recent weeks, and the latest incident was caught on camera.

The head of the Republican Party of Chaves County, Jason Perry, says surveillance video shows a woman getting out of a vehicle and struggling to dismantle a large Trump-Pence sign in front of a home early Tuesday before taking off with the sign.

The Roswell Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/2e7GUqf) that the surveillance video has been turned over to police.

Perry says about 85 percent of the Trump signs placed in Roswell have been destroyed, costing the state and local parties thousands of dollars.

Chaves County Democratic Party chair Michael Trujillo says he thinks kids are playing around and that three Democrat signs were either stolen or vandalized in recent weeks.
