Regina police are investigating a break and enter at the Saskatchewan legislature after someone kicked through the glass on a front door.

Police said their preliminary investigation shows a man broke into the west front entrance around suppertime on Monday and was later found in the building's basement.

A government official says the intruder was yelling that he was King Edward.

Officers found a shirtless 24-year-old man behaving in an irrational manner and carrying items believed to have been taken
from the legislature gift shop.

Police said the man was arrested and taken to hospital for observation.

Damage to the door is expected to cost about $2,000 to repair.
