Police in North Vancouver are investigating after 47 cars were keyed in various parking lots over the August long weekend.

They have identified a person of interest from the surveillance footage and would like to speak to them.

Cpl. Richard De Jong with North Vancouver RCMP says the footage shows the man crossing the street.

“This is a person of interest that we believe has information about this incident,” says De Jong.

He is described as Caucasian, 50 to 60 years old, balding and of a heavier set.

He was wearing a yellow shirt, green shorts, black watch and black boots.

Investigators say someone scratched the cars with a “key like object” as they were walking through the car lots sometime between August 2 and 4.

They estimate the total cost of repairs could be as high as $100,000.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
