GARY — Bed bugs were discovered Tuesday night in the council chambers during City Council, but no public explanation was given to those in attendance during the meeting.

After a man attending City Council was discovered to have bed bugs, Gary fire and police personnel ordered people in the first two pews closest to the Council Chamber doors to relocate.

Once the pews were cleared, Gary Fire Chief Paul Bradley, wearing bright orange gloves, worked with other fire and police personnel to take the pews into a hallway just outside the council chambers. The two pews were placed on red plastic sheets before being removed from the building.

The parasitic insect known as bed bugs can be transmitted from one location to another through a person’s clothing, luggage, backpacks, upholstery and furniture.
