ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Detectives caught the man accused of vandalizing a $30,000 rainbow crosswalk last week by spinning his motorcycle tires until one of them popped, according to the Albuquerque Police Department.
Anthony Morgan, 31, was arrested Tuesday and is charged with criminal damage to property over $1,000 in the incident, which happened last Wednesday and left skid marks across a rainbow crosswalk at Morningside and Central. It is unclear if detectives are seeking any more members of the group.
“I’m proud of Albuquerque for stepping up and helping police identify this offender,” Mayor Tim Keller said in a released statement. “We are an inclusive city, and this arrest sends a strong message that we will not tolerate attempts to divide us.”
