Suspicious letters sent to Towson Univ.

January 31, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Towson University police were investigating two suspicious letters sent to university staff containing a white granular substance, apparently intended to look like anthrax.

Preliminary field testing showed no evidence of a hazardous material, and police believe the letters are a hoax, Susanna Craine, a Towson spokeswoman, said yesterday. Still, university officials sent alerts via email and the university Web site asking students and staff to call police to report any other suspicious letters and packages.
