Pawleys Island police are looking for a group of teens they say damaged an enclosure containing a handicap beach wheelchair.

On Sunday morning around 3:40 a.m., a group of teens vandalized the enclosure, police said in a Twitter post. The storage shed with a beach accessible wheelchair for public use was built by Waccamaw High School student Jack Birchmeier, of Boy Scout Troop 360, last year as an Eagle Scout project.
