Pioneer Press receives latest "anthrax" threat

The Star Tribune reported Saturday that the Pioneer Press has been the latest recipient of a suspicious package labeled "anthrax."
The package was received around 6 p.m. Saturday.
The package contained a CD with a photo of Gen. Colin Powell labeled "Anthrax Shock and Awe Terror" and also a package labeled "Anthrax Biohazard."
The material in the package will be sent to the FBI for further investigation.
Other news outlets around the country such as the Star Tribune have also received similar packages.
An investigation determined that the powder sent in the package contained sugar.
A man in California was arrested last week for making similar threats.
Police said no arrests have been made in connection with the Pioneer Press incident.
