MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A case of vandalism struck the Super 8 Motel off US 17 Bypass in Myrtle Beach early Saturday.

Myrtle Beach police responded to a destruction of property complaint. The complainant stated that he had video of Sanjiv Michael Khanna, 28, damaging exit signs and setting off a fire extinguisher.
