SAN ANTONIO -- The federal courthouse Downtown was partially evacuated after a letter containing some suspicious white powder was discovered there.(from WOAI-TV)
The letter was discovered around 11:00 a.m. at the United States Courthouse in the 600 block of East Durango. According to a San Antonio Fire Department spokesperson, two Hazardous Materials units and three response teams were called to the scene to check out the powder. News 4 WOAI was told the basement area of the courthouse was placed on lockdown while crews worked to determine if the powder was dangerous.
According to a HazMat team at the scene, the letter contained food products and talcum powder and was sent by an inmate at the Connelly Unit who, apparently, wants the quality of the food at the prison unit to be tested.
His sentence may be tested, too. And it could be found to stand a few more years.
