Default Los Angeles jail closed because of bed bug infestation

The Los Angeles Police Department has temporarily shut down one of its jails because of a bed bug infestation.

The department says the Pacific Station jail on the city's west side was closed Wednesday to allow exterminators to spray and vacuum the facility.

Officials say they hope to reopen the jail Friday evening if inspections turn up no more bed bugs.

The closure comes a week after the LAPD acknowledged three officers working out of the West Valley police station in Reseda had contracted a highly contagious staph infection after an encounter with a homeless person. The officers are on medical leave and are expected to make a full recovery.
