"I do know by visual inspection it was suspicious," says Major Andrea Pitruzzella with the 914th Airlift Wing. "In this case the base was not put on lockdown, but the area was quarantined, the individuals are quarantined. Then, there's a decontamination process they're run through and then the item will be sent off base for further investigation."
"I believe it was a visual substance on the outside of the envelope they could see, but I know what the nature of it was," says Pitruzzella.
The package in question had no return address and was received on base via civilian mail carrier.
Local mutual aid crews are at the base to help.
