YORK, S.C. - Bedbugs have been found inside the York County courthouse.
York County Clerk of Court David Hamilton said the bedbugs were found in private offices and not in public areas at the Moss Justice Center in York.
Solicitor Kevin Brackett told Channel 9's partners at The Herald that the bugs were found in the public defender's office on the first floor and the prosecutors' offices on the second floor. They are on the same end of the building.
Employees were kept out of the offices until special heating instruments could be brought in to kill the bedbugs.
Brackett says prosecutors worked out of conference rooms, a law library and a jury room while awaiting the exterminators.
