White powder sent to Wells-Fargo in Champaign harmless


The FBI and postal inspector are investigating who sent an envelope with a white powder inside to Wells-Fargo in Champaign Thursday.

Firefighters responded to the business on south Neil Street shortly before 10:00 a.m. They tested the substance on site in about an hour and determined it was most likely "America's choice" sweetener.

The FBI and postal inspector will take it to Springfield for further investigation. Champaign Fire Lieutenant Gary Gula says it appears someone purposely sent the substance to the business; however, no one's safety was threatened.
