OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - It was business as usual at Chase banks in Oklahoma yesterday.
On Monday some Chase branches received threatening letters warning recipients that a white, powdery substance enclosed could kill them.
The FBI says initial testing indicates the powder is harmless
Authorities say letters were also mailed to Chase branches in or near Atlanta; Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Denver; Newark, N.J.; New York City; Oklahoma City; and Washington.
There are no reports of injury.
FBI Special Agent Gary Johnson says eight notes were sent to Chase branches Oklahoma City, Norman, Edmond and Yukon. He says one of the letters was intercepted by the postal service.
Johnson declined to specify the threat in the notes but says the letters were aimed at the bank and implied that the person who opened it was going to die.
