City cleaning crews are on their way to a fourth Albuquerque Police Department substation hit with graffiti on Tuesday.

The substation, located near Broadway and Bridge, is not a main command station.

Early Tuesday, red paint was found on three other substations located throughout the city. A KOB Eyewitness News 4 crew happened to drive by the substation at Rio Grande and Central and saw red zigzags painted on the front sign and on all of the building walls.

Police said two other substations on Montgomery in the foothills and on Girard and Central NE were also tagged this morning. 

The vandalism comes after several protests in the city over police brutality and use of force.

Stay with for updates.
