The Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Team was called to the Harford County Circuit Court House in Bel Air on Friday after a pair of judges received threatening letters containing a white substance.
The letters, which the Harford County Sheriff’s Office said contained threats to harm the President, were mailed to Judges William Carr and Steve Waldron. One of Judge Carr’s staff members opened the letter and found it contained a white substance. Neither letter threatend the local judges directly.
The HazMat crew was able to preliminarily determine the substance to be sugar and investigators have learned the suspected letter-mailer is an inmate at Department of Corrections facility in Hagerstown.
The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending. No one was injured in the incident.
