Avon Self Storage Receives Threatening Letter With Strange White Powder

Avon Self Storage of Avon, Conn., received an envelope this afternoon containing a threatening letter and a white powdery substance. An investigation is being conducted by the FBI, state police, and Jaime DiPace, the town’s emergency management director, fire chief and fire marshal.
 
The white substance was sent to the state police lab for examination. Early tests show it is not radiological, according to Police Chief Mark Rinaldo. The FBI will continue to investigate if the substance is found to be biologically hazardous. Avon police will investigate the incident as a criminal threat in any case.
 
The specific contents of the letter were not revealed, but Rinaldo said they were “of a threatening nature.”
