A $500 reward is being offered for information leading to a man seen vandalizing signs for Measure V in Costa Mesa.

The vandalism was reported Saturday night at Fair and Columbia drives. A private investigator saw the man pull up campaign signs and toss them into nearby bushes. The video has now been posted on YouTube. Hundreds of signs were vandalized, as well as signs for two councilmen.

Measure V asks voters to make Costa Mesa a charter city, giving officials more power over setting wages, among other issues.
