NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. - Charges have been approved for a man accused of keying over 100 Vancouver-area vehicles this month.

Police in New Westminster say an investigation was recently launched into Soo Yo Kim under suspicions that he was scratching vehicles earlier this month.

Police say the 37-year-old Coquitlam man was arrested after investigators saw him keying cars in Burnaby on Tuesday.

He has now been charged with two counts of mischief over $5,000 in connection to 129 damaged vehicles, all of them in New Westminster and Burnaby.

Police say they are continuing their investigation around several more incidents of vehicle-related mischief.

Kim is in custody and is expected to appear in court on Monday.
