LOS LUNAS, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say the man suspect wanted for anti-police graffiti has turned himself in.

Belen Police Department announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for Daniel Kota Wednesday. Officials say Kota turned himself into police early Thursday morning.

Kota is accused of 11 counts of unauthorized graffiti.

Last week, the Little Caesars on Main Street and Ross Avenue was hit with a derogatory message against police. Included in that message: “Crash Harder Next Time.” That was in reference to Valencia County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Thomas who was killed in a crash last Tuesday when responding to a call.
