Letter with white powder sent to Obama via Ohio CU
COLUMBUS, Ohio (8/31/12)--An Ohio credit union received a letter Thursday that was addressed to President Barack Obama and that contained a mysterious white powder.

The letter was sent via mail to the State Highway Patrol FCU, located on Busch Boulevard in Columbus, Ohio (10TV.com Aug. 30). It contained political jargon describing dissatisfaction with the administration, investigators said. 

Investigators deemed the powder was not harmful. Earlier, the employee who opened the letter locked herself in a room to contain the powder to a single area, said the news report. Hazmat crews, which investigate hazardous materials, arrived on the scene at 10:30 a.m.

Officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Postal Inspector and the Secret Service were on the scene Thursday morning trying to determine who sent the letter.

State Highway Patrol FCU is a $61 million asset credit union.
