(Newser) – The US Marshals Service says one of its employees was photographed having sex on the roof of a federal courthouse in Harrisburg, Penn. 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 ABC27 News in Harrisburg, which alerted authorities. US Marshal Martin Pane issued a statement Thursday confirming the employee's involvement, saying the matter is under investigation. The Marshals Service, the Federal Protective Service, and the US Attorneys Office are expected to handle the investigation, Local 21 News reports.

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," says Pane. Harrisburg residents gave their reactions to ABC27, with a woman saying that "it makes me feel like I’m kind of boring" and a man saying, "Oh my gosh. That’s bold." The head of a security-service firm in Harrisburg says there could be security issues involved, because building utilities are often on the roof and the couple could have been blackmailed for their roll on the rooftop.
