NC justice finds evidence of building break-in


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A break-in at the North Carolina Supreme Court caused broken glass but little other damage.

Associate Justice Bob Edmunds told The News & Observer of Raleigh he discovered a shattered glass panel in a door at the Supreme Court building when he came to work
Sunday evening
. Edmunds said a person entered a stairway but couldn't go elsewhere because of locked doors.

Edmunds says he called the Supreme Court marshal, who called Raleigh police. There have been no arrests.

Clerk Christie Cameron says it's not unusual for justices to come to the building on weekends to catch up on work, so security is a concern.

Budget cuts have scaled back the State Capitol Police.
