NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — An envelope with “suspicious powder” is being sent to the state lab after New Haven Police and Hazmat officials determined it was not hazardous.
Officials just cleared the scene at the New Haven Legal Assistance Association at 426 State Street after a envelope with suspicious white powder found inside was delivered Friday afternoon.
Four people in the building who were exposed to the powder were checked out by medical staff on scene and are fine. All other people in the building had been evacuated.
“None of the other employees experienced any health conditions, or any symptoms at all,” said New Haven Police Lt. Bob Criscuolo. “Hazmat suited up, took a sample and determined it was not hazardous. They took the rest to the state lab for analysis.”
Police say the envelope was delivered from another New Haven address, but would not say where. The two people who signed for the envelope are being questioned by detectives.
