HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu police are looking for a suspect who has targeted luxury cars for expensive vandalism.

A spokesman for car dealer JN Exotics says surveillance video captured images early Tuesday morning of a vandal "keying" a Maserati, a Bentley, a Porsche and three other high-end cars.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://bit.ly/1tRfCAV) reports the suspect likely was the same person who damaged cars Oct. 15. Together the vandalism to a dozen cars is estimated at $100,000.

Dealership spokesman David Higashiyama says the cars were parked in a lot near the company's showroom.

He says repairs are expensive because the gouging went into the metal, requiring body work on top of high-quality paint.

The damaged cars cost up to $180,000 each.
