Police: Extortion letter leads to evacuations
Gaspari Nutrition, a maker of bodybuilding supplements in Lakewood, received a disturbing letter on Monday.
Lakewood Police say that two secretaries opened the letter and that it was allegedly extorting money. They also say the secretaries noticed the letter contained a fine white powder.
Police say the letter also made references to a bomb which prompted a multi-level response including an evacuation, and an investigation by Hazmat and explosive teams.
Dozens of people from nearby businesses were also evacuated.
