White Powder Discovered at AG's Office in Montgomery


By Alabama News Network

Authorities are investigating a white powdery substance discovered at the Attorney General's office in Montgomery.  

According to Capt. Mark Williams with the Montgomery Fire Department, a secretary opened an envelope that contained a suspicious white substance.   Several different agencies responded to the scene.  Once there,  a Hazmat team set up a portable decontamination tent across the street.  Six people were possibly exposed to the substance.  The Attorney General was not one of them.

U-S Postal Inspectors tested the substance and their initial test shows the substance is not harmful.  However, a special military team is being called in to do a second test to confirm the original test.
