Two Area Courthouses Have White Powder Scare

Posted by wlpo on November 28, 2011

Could it be a copycat, the same person or just pure coincidence that a white powdery substance with a threatening letter has been sent to a couple area courthouses recently.

Early last week, investigators in Morris responded to an opened envelope with a white powdery substance at the circuit clerk’s office. The envelope included a threatening letter to a judge.

Just a week before that, police went to the downtown courthouse in Ottawa for a white powdery substance also opened in the circuit clerk’s office. That package also included a threat to an area judge.

In both cases, the powder wasn’t hazardous.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
