Suspicious Letter Sent to Wyoming's Governor
Laramie, Wy – Alert workers at the state's mail
processing center in Cheyenne intercepted a suspicious letter Friday that appeared rigged with matches set to ignite when opened.
A letter was addressed to Governor Dave Freudenthal.
The governor's press secretary says it had a return address from the same maximum-security prison in Nevada that was the apparent source of other suspicious letters to other governors nationwide.
The state's Central Mail Office is located outside the Capitol grounds in Cheyenne.
The letter has been turned over to the U-S Postal Inspection Service for further investigation.
The mail center was evacuated but were allowed to return once the letter had been removed.
