COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Red light cameras across Colorado Springs have been vandalized with what appears to be a blue paint.

Over the weekend, several drivers took pictures of vandalism and various intersections, including Platte and Chelton that historically has the most run red lights in the city.

Colorado Springs police say they're looking into the issue, but didn't have other information readily available. Lieutenant Steve Noblitt told KRDO over the phone the department hopes the perpetrator was caught on camera during the incident. He says the cameras are always recording, and could have captured when they were spray-painted.

Clean up on the cameras began Monday morning. Verra Mobility, the third party in charge of maintaining the cameras sent their one-man maintenance crew to start cleaning up the cameras.

He told KRDO he believes the person responsible used a spray-paint can and estimated the damages to be over $30,000.

Four intersections including Academy and North Carefree, Academy and Dublin, Platte and Union, and Platte and Chelton were all vandalized sometime over the weekend.
