Message from the Governor’s office –
On Thursday, December 3, 2009, shortly before 11:00 a.m., the Executive Protection Division of the Nebraska State Patrol was made aware of a suspicious letter addressed to the Governor’s Office.
The letter was contained and secured and the FBI was notified. The Lincoln Fire and Rescue Hazardous Materials Team responded and conducted a field test on the envelope and its contents. The test proved negative for any hazardous materials.
The Governor was never in contact with the letter. The letter was handed over to the FBI for any further investigation.
