Police are looking for the vandal who defaced a sand sculpture of Justin Bieber at the New York State Fair.

State police tell the Post-Standard of Syracuse that the sculpture apparently was vandalized Thursday night.

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.
