A man caused tens of thousands of dollars worth of damages after smashing bank windows and an ATM with a large cement block, Vancouver police say.

The force confirmed the incident took place near Abbott and W Hastings streets around 7 am Monday. The damages totalled approximately $70,000.

A large brick and yellow tape surrounding the TD bank near Chinatown can be seen in a photo shared online of the scene.

The Vancouver Police Department says a man was arrested nearby for mischief and is currently in custody.

Police say there is no apparent motive “other than to cause destruction and property damage.”
