The California Department of Motor Vehicles says one of its San Diego field offices will remain mostly closed through the weekend for cleanup and repair of vandalism.
The break-in occurred at the San Ysidro office before dawn Wednesday and responding police officers took into custody a man who was acting strangely and spraying a fire extinguisher.
The DMV says there was considerable damage to interior office walls and equipment.
The Business Center Court location, considered one of the busiest DMV locations in the state, is less than five miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Outdoor services such as driving tests and vehicle verifications are continuing but the office is not expected to resume full service until April 24.
Customers are being directed to four other San Diego-area offices.
The San Ysidro DMV office is located north of Interstate 905 and east of Interstate 805.
