White powders' results
NEW CASTLE, Pa. -- The white powder found by a repairman in New Castle Saturday should be tested sometime today, said Police Chief Victor Cubellis.
Officers were expecting to take it Monday to a FBI laboratory near Pittsburgh but were delayed because of the overwhelming number of other powdery substances from other areas being tested in that lab, he said.
Cubellis said they hope to know what the substance is later today.
Law enforcement officials are investigating all instances of unexplained powder after several cases of anthrax have been diagnosed in various parts of the country.
The repairman who found the substance in a parts box for toilet repair was treated and released at St. Francis Hospital in New Castle.
Police said they contained the powder immediately and there was no risk to public safety or health.
