Posted March 21, 2016
Durham, N.C. — The Durham County Sheriff's Office says a powdery substance mailed to the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority on Monday was not harmful and poses no health risk to the public.
The city's Bio-Chemical Emergency Response Team responded to 10 T.W. Alexander Drive Monday morning and secured the area after authorities received a report about the substance.
Authorities said the letter was addressed to someone who is not an employee of the NCSEAA. The source of the letter remains under investigation.
