LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- A vandal or vandals caused considerable damage overnight at a state office building at 2501 E. Sahara Ave.

"They smashed through a window some time last night to gain entry and spent some time rummaging through pretty much every office and kicked in just about every locked door," Deputy Commissioner of Insurance J.D. Decker told News 3. "There is broken glass, broken appliances and file cabinets emptied and strewn about on all three floors."

There are four state departments housed in the Bradley Building -- the Real Estate Division, the Division of Insurance, the Employee & Management Relations Board and the Manufactured Housing Division.

Decker said between 80 and 100 people work in the building and there are probably 60 offices.

All employees were sent home because the State Capitol Police Department is processing the building as a crime scene, Decker said.

"It doesn't look like your standard theft or burglary," Decker told News 3. "There are a lot of things that weren't stolen. We don't know what they were looking for."

Decker said it was too early for an estimate of damages, but he said it would "take considerable man hours to get the building ready for staffers on Monday as there are a couple dozen broken doors."

He said he does expect the offices to be open on Monday.

Decker said there was no video surveillance in the building.
