Hi, Tom

You should probably focus your search on Pompey rather than Titus.

There is an allusion to the story you are thinking of on the following

which says "Pompey brazenly enters Holy of Holies, disappointed to find it
empty." Unfortunately, this timeline does not give a source.

A slightly different take is suggested by a footnote to a volume in the
Ante-Nicene Fathers series that reads: "n. 84 In 63 b.c., when Pompey's
curiousity led him to penetrate into the Holy of Holies. He was much
impressed, however, by its simplicity, and went away without disturbing its
treasure, wondering at a religion which had no visible God."

(Unfortunately, the web page (the Wheaton College Church Fathers site) was
designed poorly, so I couldn't link from the note to the text it belonged
