A man unleashed approximately 100 bedbugs at the Augusta City Center in ME on Friday, causing officials to close the building and summon pest control. "It was extremely shocking", Director of Development Services Matt Nazar told WMTW. The same day, a pest control contractor came in to spray.

Augusta City Hall is back in business after a disturbing situation forced the entire building to close Friday. "Some were dead. So there were well in excess of 100 live and dead bugs that some, like I said were crawling away", Nazar said.

The man went to the code enforcement office in Augusta on June 2 to complain about bed bugs at his apartment.

The man returned to City Center later Friday seeking General Assistance's help in securing a new place to live. Police said the man was unhappy with his housing.
