DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Deputies are searching for a man who broke into a courthouse in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

The Broward Sheriff's Office said in a news release that a one-handed burglar used a bat to gain entry through a glass door of the North Regional Courthouse Sunday morning. Deputies say the man tried to open several doors once he was inside. He then entered one room and remained there for a few minutes before exiting.

Courthouse security staff arrived to work Monday morning and noticed that the doors had been smashed. No items were reported missing.

Surveillance video captured the man on tape. The suspect is missing his left hand, has a beard and short hair. He was seen driving a silver Nissan Pathfinder.

Anyone with information is asked to contact deputies.
