Bed bug found at juvenile court complex

Updated: June 7, 2013 10:49PM



A single bed bug was found last week at the Cook County juvenile court complex, an official said Thursday.

It was found in the file area of the clerk’s office on the building’s concourse level, said Kristen Mack, a spokeswoman for the county board president. Someone reported seeing a bed bug Oct. 16, she said, and an exterminator was called to treat and inspect the area the next day.

Mack said it turned out to be an “isolated situation.”

She said the exterminator checked several offices and courtrooms to put people’s minds at ease, but no infestation was found — just the one bug.

She said officials are keeping an eye on it.
