An envelope containing white powder mailed to Tracy Memorial Village Hall led to evacuation of the building Wednesday, said Trooper Aaron Hicks, public information officer for state police Troop K.
The powder was discovered Wednesday morning and was found to be nonhazardous later in the day. Police have not disclosed what the substance is.
The village hall was cordoned off with police tape during the evacuation, but Main Street remained open to traffic.
The powder was discovered about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in an envelope sent to village court in Tracy Memorial Village Hall, 77 Main St., Chatham, Hicks said. Three village hall employees who were in the vicinity of the envelope when it was opened were placed on quarantine as a precautionary measure, but were released at about 12:30 p.m.
