Police investigate suspicious powder mailed to Roselle Park residents

Roselle Park police are warning all residents to carefully inspect their mail after over a dozen residents received envelopes with a suspicious powder inside.



Police say the envelopes had a fraudulent return address of "Roselle Park Police."



Officials have tested the powder and say that the substance does not appear to be dangerous.



Police say that any resident who receives a suspicious envelope should not touch it and contact police immediately.



Many of the letters came out of the Elizabeth post office.
