LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - White powder contained in a letter sent to a Lincoln attorney turned out to be flour.
The Lincoln Journal Star says (http://bit.ly/Pu0WWf ) the lawyer found the powder inside an envelope he opened Monday.
The lawyer, who specializes in debt collection, didn't think the powder was dangerous but decided to call experts.
Lincoln Fire and Rescue Capt. Lloyd "Eddie" Mueller says police and firefighters responded, and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department had the powder tested. It was just flour.
Police Capt. Jim Davidsaver says the letter included a return address and the name of an 86-year-old man. Davidsaver says the attorney is involved in a case against the man, but the man won't be arrested because the letter didn't include any threats.
