Francis Street and portions of State Circle were closed to traffic briefly Wednesday afternoon as officials from the Maryland State Police and fire department personnel investigated a suspicious letter found in a mailroom in the Jeffrey Building on Francis Street.
According to a press release from the Maryland State Police, the letter appeared to contain a small packet containing a powdery substance.
“The fire department has cleared the package and determined the substance appears to be a baby powder," officials said in the release. "They have cleared the scene.”
Officials from the State Police continue to investigate the situation, according to the release.
Another suspicious package was found earlier this year in the building, which houses the state’s mailroom.
