Police search for vandals

Police are searching for a group who did "significant damage" to a telephone box on Otago Peninsula.

Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said the incident happened about 12.15am on Wednesday.

Officers were notified two people had smashed up the public phone box outside the public toilets in Portobello Rd, Macandrew Bay.

The two offenders ran off.

Police were keen to locate them and anyone with any knowledge was asked to phone police on 105, Snr Sgt Bond said.
