RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – A hazmat team responded to the Patrick Henry Building on Friday morning for what investigators believe was a food product.

Two employees in a first-floor office opened a letter and found contents they deemed to be suspicious, prompting the hazmat response shortly after 10 a.m.

The substance, which has not been positively identified, was sent to a lab for testing.

No one was evacuated and the scene was cleared after about an hour and a half.
