SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City Police are investigating Monday morning after the Justice Court in Salt Lake City was burglarized sometime over the weekend.

Sgt. Brandon Shearer of Salt Lake City Police confirms the Salt Lake City Justice Courts, 333 South and 200 East, were burglarized sometime between Friday night and Monday morning.

Several ceiling tiles were damaged and police said someone also damaged the glass on vending machines and may have stolen some of the contents. The damage is estimated at $1,500.

A person of interest was caught on surveillance cameras and is being sought by police.

Police say court employees arrived Monday morning and discovered the damage.

Court proceedings were delayed from beginning for about an hour as police assessed the damage and cleared the building.
