BOERNE, Texas – An 18-year-old San Antonio man was arrested in connection with 12 graffiti incidents in Boerne.

According to a Facebook post, Boerne police said Miguel Muniz was arrested late Friday afternoon in San Antonio.

If found guilty in a trial, Muniz could face a maximum of two years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

The San Antonio Police Department assisted in the arrest.
