One Dude Knew It Wasn't AnthraxS

Big city newspapers are always going into panic mode after receiving envelopes of white powder that turns out to be harmless. At the Caspar (Wyoming) Star-Tribune, it turned out to be cocaine:

Casper police identified white powder found in an envelope addressed to the Casper Star-Tribune as cocaine.

It was roughly one half of a tablespoon, on a dollar bill.

There was not a letter in the envelope and Casper police Lt. Chris Walsh said officers do not believe at this time that it was meant as a threat.

The letter was sent to the Star-Tribune in care of an employee. Walsh does not suspect the employee of anything criminal.

SOUNDS PERFECTLY INNOCENT. [via Romenesko]
