DENVER — A man has been arrested in connection to the break-in at the Colorado State Capitol last month, the Denver Police Department said Monday.

The Colorado State Patrol alleges that Dominguez got into the building through a faulty security door and broke several bust sculptures, glass display cabinets, chairs and signage.

According to an affidavit, Dominguez cut himself on glass and left blood evidence behind. He was in the building for about three hours.

Investigators said they found Dominguez’s jacket inside the building that included a message with his name on it.

The Denver Police Department handled the investigation that led to Dominguez’s arrest.
