Bed bug "bugs" those in court

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH -

Another bed bug was found January 23 at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center.

This one stopped a trial.

A source tells 19 Action News a bug crawled on a juror's sweatshirt, the latest in a series of problems with bed bugs at the justice center.

The bed bug just found appeared in a courtroom on the 20th floor during jury selection.

The case now has to be rescheduled.

January 22, a bed bug was found on the 11th floor where two other bugs were found before.

The weekend prior, dogs sniffing for bed bugs hit on three areas.

Officials have said all of those areas have been treated.

But now, Chief Judge John Russo is demanding a waiting area for jurors get treated too.

The court told us to call a spokesperson for County Executive Ed Fitzgerald.

Our Ed Gallek left messages at his office, on his cell phone, and he went there.

He didn't get a response.

 

 

IN RECENT DAYS,OFFICIALS HAVE SAID YOU SHOULDN'T BE NERVOUS--NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT SINCE THERE HAVE ONLY BEEN ISOLATED CASES. AND NOW THIS.
