Spartanburg Bank Evacuated Tuesday After Powder Found Inside - August 27, 2013

Authorities evacuated a Spartanburg bank Tuesday afternoon after fire officials say a powdery substance was found inside a letter.

Firefighters and HazMat crews were called to the TD Bank on at 340 East Main Street around 4:30 pm. The white powdery substance was later deemed safe after it was determined it was boric acid, a household chemical that poses no risk.

East Main Street was closed between Oakland and Alabama streets for a short time. Traffic in the area was re-opened.

People inside the building at the time of the discovery were checked out and allowed to leave. The building was re-opened after the powder was tested.

Captain Regina Nowak of Spartanburg Public Safety said that the investigation into the discovery of the substance is ongoing. If anyone has any information about the case they are asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC or Text Tip 649 with your information to CRIMES (274637).
