Police are looking for a driver who destroyed many parking meters by smearing peanut butter in them, according to police in Canada.

The White Rock RCMP officers are investigating the criminal mischief incident in relation to the City of White Rock parking meters.

Last month, 18 city parking meters along High Street and Vidal Street were vandalized, requiring repairs or cleaning.

Police said that the suspect, who was not identified, appeared to be angry when he used peanut butter to vandalize the parking meters.

If convicted, the suspect faces up to 2 years in prison for each offense.

The City of White Rock communications manager Farnaz Farrokhi said that he is very disappointed with the acts of vandalism as this is not what the community is all about.

Farrokhi added that the suspect does not reflect the integrity and community spirit of White Rock residents.

Police urged residents with security surveillance systems to review footage in order to track down the suspect.
