Casper Star Tribune Evacuated

Laramie, WY – Employees of the Casper Star-Tribune were
temporarily evacuated from their offices after a staff member
opened an envelope containing an unknown white powder later
identified as cocaine.
The newspaper building was evacuated for about three hours
Friday morning.
The newspaper reported on its Web site that testing by Casper
police determined the roughly one-half tablespoon of white powder
to be cocaine.
Authorities say the envelope contained a dollar bill and had a
Denver postmark, but no letter.
Casper police Lt. Chris Walsh says the letter was addressed to
the Star-Tribune in care of an employee, but the employee is
suspected of no wrongdoing.
Employees were evacuated to the parking lot and unable to leave
the property. They were allowed back in the building after a
precautionary bomb sweep.
