Courthouse Security Checkpoint Out of Order

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Nueces County courthouse is without a key piece of security equipment. Guards at the courthouse tell KRIS6 News the x-ray machine at the security checkpoint has been down for at least a month.

It's used to screen visitors for weapons and other contraband before they head to various courtrooms.

The sheriff's department wouldn't discuss what security measures are being taken in the absence of the x-ray machine.

A replacement was ordered and should be up and running by October.
