Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman who was caught on camera defacing several historical landmarks in downtown Los Angeles over the weekend, and causing a significant amount of damage.
Surveillance video shows a woman with blue hair defacing multiple walls of the Hall of Justice, Hall of Records and the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center on Sunday just before 6 p.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a news release.
The historical landmarks were spray-painted with blue paint, worth about $9,000 in damage, officials said.
The buildings are all located on West Temple Street in downtown Los Angeles.
Cleanup efforts were underway.
The woman was described as short, between the ages of 30 and 40, with a thin build, wearing a red and black plaid, long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans and seen carrying a burgundy tote-style bag.
