Substance likely to remain a mystery
Suspicious material led to evacuation of Social Security building
What was the suspicious powdery substance which forced the La Grande Social Security office building to be evacuated on Tuesday?
The answer will likely never be provided to the public.
“We will not be releasing what the substance is. We do not want to encourage copy cats,” said Beth Anne Steele public affairs specialist for the FBI’s Portland office.
The suspicious substance was received in the mail at the La Grande Social Security office building, 2205 Cove Ave., on Tuesday. The suspicious substance was reported to the La Grande Police Department shortly before 2:30 p.m.
The police and other public safety officials then arrived at the scene.
