11:08 A.M. — Powdered sugar from a doughnut triggered a hazardous materials response to a psychiatrist’s office on Pine Island this morning.
The staff of Dr. Catherine Larned this morning reported finding white powder on an envelope mailed to the office.
Deputies and a local hazardous materials team responded to the doctor’s office on Pine Island Road, said Lee County sheriff’s Sgt. Stephanie Eller.
The person who mailed the envelope was contacted.
“The person said they were eating a doughnut when they mailed the envelope and some powdered sugar must have gotten on the envelope,” Eller said.
Although the call turned out to be a false alarm, “with everything going on in the world today, you can’t be too careful,” Eller said.
