Speed Camera Vandalized for Second Time in a Month

For the second time in a month, a speed camera in Washington, D.C., has been vandalized. 

Police say a vandal damaged a traffic camera on the 3700 block of Southern Avenue SE on April 19, rendering it inoperable. Police released a surveillance photo of a vehicle of interest Monday.

In the photo, a black pickup truck with a full bed is seen driving by. 

Investigators are looking into whether the vandal is also responsible for damaging a traffic camera on the same block a week earlier. 

A nearby surveillance camera caught a person and vehicle of interest. The vehicle is believed to be a dark-colored Hyundai Santa Fe. 

Anyone with information that can help police is asked to call 202-727-9099.
