New Mexico State police are hoping to remind everyone in the homestretch of campaign season that vandalizing campaign signs is a crime.

The unidentified man in the picture attached was ripping up some signs this week in Española and police are looking for help in identifying him.

From the state police news release sent Tuesday:

ESPAÑOLA — State Police are looking into a reported criminal damage to property incident that occurred in Rio Arriba County this weekend involving campaign signs, and we want to remind our residents that this is a criminal offense.

An unidentified male in Rio Arriba County was ripping up campaign signs at the intersection of Paseo De Onate and US Highway 285.  This is depicted in the attached photos.

As we move into campaign season our beautiful state will have numerous colorful posters; let’s be respectful of these signs and avoid the petty misdemeanor criminal offense that goes along with damaging them.  When caught, a suspect can carry a fine and/or penalty of up to a half a year in jail.  The suspect has not been identified in the pictures.  If you have information on the suspect, please contact the Espanola State Police office at 1-505-753-2277.
