Federal Courthouse Lockdown in Orlando Yesterday

I was watching WESH news yesterday afternoon when they broke in with news from one of their reporters that the Federal Courthouse downtown had been locked down. The reporter was covering the trial of the people who had scammed FEMA of hurricane money when it seems an envelope full of white powder was received at the building. Security took full precautions and locked down the building while they examined the contents of the package.

The lockdown has since been lifted, so I’m guessing the powder turned out to not be a bio-terrorist threat, like anthrax. But since the initial news reports, I haven’t heard anything further, which I find strange.

Any of our readers out there have any news nuggets on this to share?
