Suspicious White Powder Sent to CA Government Offices

Packages containing a powdery white substance (later determined to be rat poison) were received at five offices of the California Children and Family Services Department on Monday. There were no injuries. Similar packages were sent to two Mormon Temples and and an office owned by the Knight of Columbus last week. The FBI has determined that the substance found in the earlier packages is “not any kind of biological agent or toxin or even a new strain”. Many gay rights groups have denounced the act. [NTI]
