FBI, OSP investigate suspicious mail at Oregon government offices

Posted: Updated:

The FBI and Oregon State Police are investigating suspicious mail received at government offices around the state.

Troopers said multiple government offices received the mail, described as suspicious, with some containing an unknown substance.

In those cases, hazardous materials teams responded to the scene.

Very few details were immediately released.

An FBI spokeswoman released a statement Monday night saying the agency is working with police and the U.S. Postal Service, but "At this point it is too early to say where this investigation may lead or to release any details about the letters or locations."

A Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesman confirmed they received a letter that is part of this ongoing investigation. The employee who opened it has not shown any signs of illness.

The East Oregonian reported Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer was taken to the hospital after opening a letter addressed to him at the sheriff's office containing a white substance.
