— Cary authorities have a mystery on their hands.

A teacher at Chesterbrook Academy noticed a squirrel eating a white powdery substance. Soon after, the squirrel got sick.

Animal control officers took care of the squirrel and found more piles of the white powdery substance around the building.

Hazmat crews took samples and discovered it was flour.

No one knows how the flour got there or who put it there.
