SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — South Lake Tahoe police are trying to find the person responsible for vandalizing trees on city property near Regan Beach and are asking for the public’s assistance.

City staff found out about the vandalism this past weekend and has been working to figure out if the trees can be saved.
