Police were investigating a late-night break-in at the office where the state's campaign finance records are kept, but officials said Thursday no documents appeared to be missing.

The investigation comes just five days before the election and during a legal challenge by a consultant to a conservative group over files held by the Office of the Commissioner of Campaign Finances and Practices.

A Capitol security guard reported the break-in at 9:47 p.m. Wednesday, finding the door open and the basement light on. Security had been heightened in the days leading to Tuesday's election.
