As protesters retreated from Syracuse’s Public Safety Building Saturday night and into the streets of downtown, sirens wailed as a handful of demonstrators vandalized at least a dozen downtown buildings. M. Lemp Jewelers was among them.
The store’s owner, Don Lemp, received a call from his alarm company Saturday, minutes before midnight. Someone broke the storefront’s window, but nothing was stolen, Lemp said.
“Everything was in the vault. Unless you wanted a couple bottles of hand sanitizer, there wasn’t really anything to take,” Lemp said.
