SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Shreveport police are investigating a break-in and vandalism at the Shreveport office of a state House representative.

KSLA-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2aqM9xZ ) that this was the second break-in since September at the office of Democratic state Rep. Barbara Norton. The break-in took place Sunday evening.

Norton said whoever broke in “went through several rooms” and she said in a statement that wires to her state office were tampered with, causing a “total loss of power to the building.” She said writing also was left on a door.

According police reports, police determined the building had been entered “for the sole purpose of leaving written communications” to those in the office.

No one has been arrested in connection with the Sept. 15, 2015, break-in.

Norton’s office will be closed until next Monday.
