White powder being sent to a lab, investigation continues

Posted by wlpo on November 18, 2011

Business is back to normal at the La Salle County Circuit Clerk’s office but police continue to investigate a white powder that arrived by mail Wednesday.

The mystery powder closed the office in the downtown Ottawa courthouse.  Sheriff Tom Templeton says they were able to prove the powder wasn’t hazardous.  He says it’s being sent to a lab for more testing.  He isn’t saying what it could be but just that it is being handled as a criminal investigation.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
