Congressmember Gregory Meeks’ Washington, D.C. office was temporarily shut down after a staffer found a suspicious letter.

The letter contained a powdery substance, according to a Meeks staffer, and was found while another worker was sorting the mail. The Congressmember was not there at the time, and was informed of the incident.

The D.C. staff was quarantined, and the Rayburn House office was closed. The staff and other personnel were directed to avoid the area until informed otherwise. After U.S. Capitol Police investigated the matter, they determined the substance was not deadly, said police.
