Powder Scare Turns Out to be Baby Powder

A scare that prompted a lockdown of a downtown Springfield office building has now become a matter for the police.


A portion of the Governor’s Office of Constituent Services, across from the Capitol, was closed down when a powder spilled from an envelope.


The powder was just baby powder and posed no danger, but a note in the same envelope constituted a “legitimate threat,” according to Springfield fire chief Ken Fustin.


Fustin would not elaborate.
