TEXAS — At 10:50 am Wednesday, HPD personnel at 33 Artesian building opened a mailed envelope addressed to HPD. Inside was a zipped baggie containing a white powdery substance. As a precaution, Hazmat crews responded. HFD’s early tests indicated the presence of cocaine.
Four employees present when the envelope was opened were checked out for safety reasons. The envelope had a name and return address. An enclosed piece of paper had a few names on it.
Officers don’t believe the envelope was intended as a threat to law enforcement.
Investigators believe it might have been sent by someone trying to provide names of others selling the drug. An investigation is ongoing.
