LORAIN, Ohio- The Lorain Municipal Court offices were closed Thursday afternoon after a bed bug was found.

At about 1 p.m. a person walking into court brushed a bed bug onto the floor, Judge Mark Mihok said. The judge closed the court area and called the health department, which sent a representative to pick up the bug.

Mihok said a company will survey city hall and the courthouse to see if there are more bugs. It’s unclear if the court will be open on Friday.

People will be notified of their new court dates by mail.
