Suspicious White Powder Prompts Evacuation At Detention Center

Posted: Updated:

At approximately 11:00am, authorities and a HAZMAT team responded the 8000 block of State Road for reports of an envelope containing white powder.

The envelope was discovered in the mailroom of the Philadelphia Detention Center.   The postmaster was also called in.   There were no transports and only 20 people had to be evacuated to the courtyard.

There is no work yet on what the substance was, but the situation is under control.
