There was an anthrax threat at the U.S. Attorney's Office in Oklahoma City. According to a March 14 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, a powdery, white substance was delivered in a letter to the U.S. Attorney's Office in downtown Oklahoma City.
FBI agents and members of the Secret Service went to investigate a letter that delivered to 210 W. Park Avenue. Those investigating thought the white powder was anthrax. The substance was tested and the results came back negative for anthrax.
“I was downtown this afternoon and didn't notice anything going on,” Merle Dawson, from Oklahoma City, said. “I guess they were trying to keep it quiet. If the news of an anthrax threat was made public, I can see where that could cause a panic. I know anthrax is very dangerous.
At the time of publication, the substance was not identified, yet deemed “not dangerous.” It was also unknown how many FBI agents and Secret Service members were involved in the investigation into the anthrax threat.
