More than half of Oregon’s county sheriffs may have received suspicious letters in the mail and at least one sheriff was hospitalized for observation after being exposed to a potentially toxic substance, sources said on Monday.
The Oregon State Police is investigating but had released few details as of Monday evening, saying only that “multiple government offices around the state received suspicious mail, some with an unknown substance” and that hazardous materials teams had been dispatched to deal with the possible toxins.
There were no reports of suspicious parcels in the mid-valley, but a spokesman for the Association of Oregon Counties said Monday that the situation appeared to have affected more than half of Oregon’s 36 counties.
