Suspicious powder mailed near super bowl

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

 

On Friday, two days before the Super Bowl at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey, it was reported that a suspicious white powder was mailed to at least five hotels in the area. The FBI is currently investigating the matter. The hotels are located in Carlstadt and East Rutherford, New Jersey.

A hotel in Manhattan, New York also received a suspicious envelope on Friday. Although several hotels have received these suspicious packages, no packages have been sent to the hotels of the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks. However, two packages were stopped at the post office, and didn't reach their destinations. 

Met Life Stadium is located in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Extensive security plans have been in place for months to avoid a terrorist situation.

"There are no reported injuries at this time, and the locations are being secured," the New Jersey State Police said in a statement. "This situation is being thoroughly investigated and more information will be provided when it becomes available."

East Rutherford mayor James Cassella said Friday that the suspicious powder found in his city was identified as corn starch.
