On Monday morning, police found Acuna at a Motel 6 just after midnight, when a police officer had done a routine check of names at local motels. Acuna's name caught his attention.
Last week, police told 9NEWS they were looking for Acuna. They say he was double dipping, charging indigent families money for services as well as getting payment from the state.
According to one arrest affidavit, Acuna is accused of falsifying documents in 10 cases, charging the state more than $12,000.
Acuna is charged with multiple felony counts.
A friend of Acuna's and a local journalist sat down with the wanted man last night before his arrest and said Acuna wasn't running from the law.
Instead, Matt Lubich with the Johnstown Breeze said Acuna told him he had gone to stay with family in California before turning himself in.
"He is adamant that he did not flee the state to escape the law. He was fleeing a marriage that was falling apart. He was trying to get away from having his mother die, which broke his heart, and he had business that, for a lot of those reasons, was beginning to go south," Lubich said.
Acuna is currently being held in Larimer County Jail with a bond of $75,000.
