(Newser) – Police are looking for the vandal who defaced a sand sculpture of Justin Bieber at the New York State Fair, reports the AP. State police tell the Syracuse Post-Standard that the sculpture apparently was vandalized Thursday night; cops say they have a partial description of the perp. Bieber's likeness was part of a 200-ton sand sculpture depicting artists who performed at the fair's old grandstand, which was imploded in January.

Bieber's face appeared near the base of the sculpture. He was below the Charlie Daniels Band and singer Charley Pride and to the left of actor Steve Martin. The fair runs through Monday in Geddes, near Syracuse.
