SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A man suspected of causing thousands of dollars in damage to an elevator at the Galleria parking garage on Jan. 15 is in police custody.

Jonathan Dean Secord, 34, turned himself in to investigators on Monday, according to Sgt. Ben Hoster with the Scottsdale Police Department.

Last week, police asked for help identifying a man they say "donkey kicked" the elevator doors several times and then "front" kicked the control panel, destroying it. He was able to force open the elevator doors and leave the area before officers arrived.

The elevator at the garage located near Scottsdale and Camelback roads was damaged to the point that it was inoperable, with an estimated repair cost of $22,000.

Hoster said the department received numerous tips identifying Secord as the suspect.
