CAACP - Suspicious Envelope Sent To Shea-Porter's Office

Polcie Determine Substance Inside Envelope Was Green Tea


MANCHESTER, N.H. -- An envelope with a suspicious substance in it was sent to U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter's Manchester office on Wednesday.


Shea-Porter's staff notified Manchester police when they received the suspicious envelope. Officials were able to determine that the substance was green tea and had been sent as a protest.


There was a return address on the envelope, and police spoke to the sender. Police said the sender showed a lack of judgment but didn't mean to cause alarm. The same person sent similar letters to U.S. Rep. Paul Hodes, U.S. Sen. Judd Gregg and U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.
