Scott Rigell, Randy Forbes offices receive powdery substance letters
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Staff at the Virginia offices of two congressmen reported receiving letters with a powdery substance inside.
Fire investigators tell media outlets the substance found in a letter received Friday at Rep. Scott Rigell's office poses no immediate threat. The letter was received at his Virginia Beach office.
In Chesapeake, Rep. Randy Forbes' office also reported receiving a letter containing a powdery substance. Testing on that material has not been completed.
Virginia Beach fire officials say they will send the substance found in the Rigell letter to a state lab in Richmond for further testing. A spokesman said the letter was not threatening.
Neither congressman was in the office when the letters arrived.
