Bronze shoes stolen from New Mexico Veterans Memorial

Authorities say bronze shoes have been stolen from an Albuquerque veterans’ memorial that honors those who served in the U.S. war on terror.

New Mexico Veterans Memorial Foundation vice president James Lehner says the bronze shoes were stolen Friday night.

Michael Burd with the New Mexico Veterans Memorial Board of Directors says the five pairs of shoes are worth thousands of dollars. He says there’s a growing need for physical security and electronic surveillance at the memorial park.

Lehner says thieves also had taken the M16 and helmet that were part of the Vietnam memorial.

Albuquerque police and officials with the New Mexico Veterans Memorial say no arrests have been made.
