RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The State Capitol Police is looking for a suspect after more than 40 state-owned vehicles were vandalized during the past month.

A news release from the N.C. Department of Public Safety says that since mid-September, 42 state government vehicles have been damaged or vandalized at several Department of Public Safety office locations.

Surveillance video shows someone using the state credit cards, and it’s hoped someone will recognize the person using them. The statement says more than $16,000 of fuel has been purchased in Wake, Johnston, Wilson and Alamance counties using the stolen credit cards.

In one instance, passenger-side windows were shattered on 11 vehicles and five state credit cards were taken. At another location, five vehicles were vandalized and two were destroyed by fire.
