Package That Ignited at Washington Post Office Was Addressed to Napolitano

January 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

A package that ignited today at a Washington post office was addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, a U.S. official said. The official, who wasn’t authorized to speak on the matter and asked for anonymity, said the package caught fire when postal workers threw it into a bin.
The package “was similar in nature” to two smoldering packages found yesterday at Maryland government buildings, Cathy Lanier, Washington’s police chief, told reporters at a news conference.
Today’s incident, which prompted the post office’s evacuation, didn’t result in any injuries, said Officer Hugh Carew, a police spokesman, in an interview. The package wasn’t opened and burned itself out, said another law-enforcement official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter and asked for anonymity. The Maryland packages contained notes criticizing highway signs that urge motorists to report suspicious activity, according to the Associated Press, citing investigators. (bloomberg)
