Vandals strike for the second time at a popular holiday hotspot. This time the crooks, and a surprising accomplice, were caught on camera.

What upsets the Johnstone Park employees the most is what's on the surveillance video.

It shows a woman pull up in the middle of the day, around 3:00 Tuesday, then, two children get out of the car, break through the fence and into the kiddie park where the Christmas lights display is setup.

Organizers said the kids went in and tore down several lights and display pieces.

Back in November we told you the group that runs Fantasy Land had its extension cords stolen for their light display right around the corner.

That group installed more security measures and locked a gate.

Elaine Lea said what hurt them the most is that an adult let it happen.

"They actually went to the front gate, which was locked, locked for a reason. She stood there and it looked like she took pictures of the teenager in here. And it didn't seem to bother them that they were breaking the law by jumping the fence."

The kiddie park employees are looking for help identifying the vandals, especially the woman in the video.
