LAUREL, Md. (WUSA9) -- Howard County police have released surveillance video of a person accused of spray painting more than 30 cars in Laurel and Columbia, including some at a Laurel senior living center.

The suspect is believed to be responsible for both cases and possibly many others. The surveillance video was captured at approximately 2 a.m.

The person in the video was seen wearing dark clothing, dark gloves and a black and white pom knit hat. Their gender and race are unknown.

The spray paint used in the incidents was white, and in some cases included the words "Jack Boys".
