Chase banks find powder in letters

October 22, 2008|Times Wire Reports

At least 30 letters containing suspicious powder have been mailed to Chase banks in nine cities but appear to be harmless, authorities said.

The FBI said it was investigating "a series of letters sent to banks around the country."

"These threat letters contain a powder substance," the FBI said in a statement. "At this point, field tests on the powder have been negative."

The letters all appear to be from the same source and were sent from Texas, the official said.
