Last year during the anthrax scares, there was a local scare with something up at the Police Department storeroom, as I recall. What were the results of the investigation?

It was in October 2001 in a Douglas County District Court filing room, not the Police Department. Some white powder was examined and found not to be anthrax or anything that posed a danger. Therefore, state health officials didn't test to determine specifically what the powder was. One theory was that it may have been leftover cleaning powder.
