Police investigate mail delivered to Princeton with white powder

    Update: Authorities say the substance turned out to be nothing more than sugar. Now the investigation turns toward who sent the powdery package and why. No injuries were reported, because, well, it was just sugar.

    Original report: It’s been about 10 years since five people died when Anthrax-laced letters were mailed to a mailbox in Princeton to lawmakers and news organizations.

    Today, authorities are investigating a letter with a white powdery substance delivered to a township building. It’s not clear what the substance is, or how many people have been exposed, the Associated Press reports.

    Police and haz-mat crews are on the scene.
