Democratic Pennsylvania Rep. Brendan Boyle said Monday night that his office was “looted” during the riots and looting that have been ongoing since the death of George Floyd.

Boyle sent out a tweet Monday saying his office has contacted the police about the break-in.

“Just learned one of my district offices has been broken into and is currently being looted. We have notified the authorities,” Boyle said on Twitter. “If those who are currently breaking into and looting my office really want our voter registration forms because they’re in such high demand, then I would be totally cool with that,” he continued.

Boyle represents Pennsylvania’s 2nd congressional district, which includes parts of Philadelphia.

This all comes as countless riots and protests have gone on throughout the U.S. over Floyd’s death while in police custody. Stores have continued to be looted and protesters have continued to be arrested, as late as Monday night.
