OKLAHOMA CITY - A metro neighborhood is hoping to track down a couple of vandals who targeted their homes, vehicles and even a nearby elementary school.

Those who live in the neighborhood say they've been seeing more and more graffiti since school let out in May and they are tired of cleaning it up.

So, they're hoping surveillance video can lead them and police to answers as to who is responsible.

Just this week, fences, cars, even the neighborhood elementary school were all targeted by vandals.

“Some of them have caused serious damage,” said Dan Lango, a resident in Surrey Hills.

Residents in the neighborhood are fed up, blaming vandals for ruining their neighborhood's sense of peace.

“It's a nice neighborhood. We hadn't had any problems and now there's graffiti everywhere,” Lango said.

“We don't want that being the symbol of our school or the symbol of our community,” said Surrey Hills Elementary School Principal Bill Pierce.

That elementary school was one of this week’s targets.

Part of the exterior of the building was spray painted with blue and orange paint.

“We took action, notifying the administration and getting that cleaned up in time for school,” said Pierce.

The neighborhood released surveillance video from the neighborhood's community center.

On the video, you see as two boys walking by the camera. They both look directly at the camera and then disappear. One is then seen standing against the wall before disappearing again.

Moments later, the camera goes dark. A photo provided by neighbors shows the camera was painted over with blue spray paint.

Nearby, fences and curbs were also painted with blue and orange spray paint.

“We believe it might be kids bored for the summer,” Lango said.

He says the damage is adding up and residents here are ready for it to stop.

“It's just become a nuisance. It worries us that if we leave a car outside at night, what's going to happen to our car?” he said.

Neighbors are hoping if they find the boys in the video, they'll find answers about the graffiti.

Neighborhood residents say someone has also been breaking into cars, and rummaging through them.

They don't know if the incidents are connected.

Oklahoma City police are investigating the vandalism from this week.

If you have any information, give them a call.
