U.S. Marshals staffer caught having sex on courthouse roof

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The U.S. Marshals Service says one of its employees was photographed having sex on the roof of a federal courthouse in Pennsylvania.

A resident of a nearby apartment building who was concerned that there was a security breach snapped the pictures this week and sent them to WHTM-TV in Harrisburg, which alerted authorities.

U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane issued a statement Thursday confirming the employee's involvement. He said the matter is under investigation.

The photos depict a couple engaged in sex acts on the roof of the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Harrisburg.

"Since the case is still under investigation, we are limited as to what we may say, however we are resolute that the security integrity of the building remains intact," Pane said in a statement.

CBS affiliate WHP reports that the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Protective Service will handle the future findings of the investigation, along with the U.S. Attorney's Office, as the investigation develops.
