The man accused of pushing over and causing about $5000 damage to the elk statue in front of the Pink Garter Plaza last Sunday morning has turned himself in to police.

The person has been depicted in released photos this past week and was identified thanks to numerous tips from the community.


Even as detectives were actively seeking the subject to speak with, he learned from a friend of the media attention the case was receiving and turned himself in to the police department yesterday.
