Metro Police say they are investigating a Sunday morning burglary at U.S. Sen.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, police were dispatched to the senator's local office at around 9am local time on Sunday.

A threatening note was also reportedly left inside the office, however, authorities refused to confirm that.

Further details were not immediately available.

Heller is among the handful of Republicans who have opposed the Trump administration's health care and has been vocal in denouncing enormous Medicaid cuts.

The investigation into this case is ongoing.

Patricia Spencer told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the suspected break-in occurred Saturday just before 9 a.m. That's because whoever broke into Heller's office apparently left a "threatening note" addressed to the senator.

Widely seen as a potential dissenting voice on Senate Republicans' Obamacare repeal bill, Heller has faced constituent pressure in recent weeks to block the bill from receiving a vote in the Senate.
