Mysterious powder, photo of Tim Tebow lead to hazmat scare in New Jersey
A letter that was addressed to Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop caused an evacuation of City Hall on Monday. The letter, which was later tested and deemed harmless, contained a mysterious white powder that was clearly intended to cause some sort of chemical scare. The letter also reportedly contained a photo of the one and only Tim Tebow.
According to The Jersey Journal, a source noted that the letter contained “spiritual stuff, heaven stuff” and the photo of Tebow. It is unclear who the letter was from or what the sender’s motive was. The building was evacuated for about an hour until the powder was tested and city workers were allowed back inside.
There’s nothing funny about a biological scare, given some of the problems politicians and city offices have had with anthrax over the last decade or so. Still, we can’t help but chuckle at the fact that there was a picture of the Teebs included with the letter. This guy truly is everywhere, even if he remains unemployed.
