VIENNA (AP) — Security guards at an Austrian court might need to put up a sign at the screening gate to let the public know about another item prohibited on the premises — cockroaches.

State broadcaster ORF said Wednesday that security personnel in the western city of Linz turned away a man a day earlier after he tried to enter the court building with a sack full of the six-legged pests.

ORF did not say why the man had the roaches or what he planned to do with them.
