Suspicious substance mailed to New Jersey hotels


Packages containing a suspicious white powder have been mailed to at least five hotels in the area surrounding MetLife Stadium, site of Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The Associated Press reports that someone at an Econo Lodge found a suspicious substance in an envelope on Friday, and similar mailings were found at the Homestead Inn in East Rutherford and a Renaissance Inn in Rutherford. Additional envelopes were intercepted on a mail truck before they reached a Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn.

There have been no reports of any suspicious mailings to either the Westin, where the Seahawks are staying, or the Hyatt Regency, where the Broncos are staying.

The FBI and local law enforcement are investigating. There are no reports of injuries.

    The packages contained soap or some kind of cleaning agent. Soap and cleansers have never been seen or used in a New Jersey hotel.
