Glen Rock NJ, A County of Bergen Health Services HazMat team was called to a home in Glen Rock late Thursday evening, 04/07 after a male resident opened a “mysterious” package in the home’s basement and was exposed to an unknown white powder. The initial 911 telephone call requesting help was answered by Glen Rock PD shortly before 10 PM. The resident refused medical aid. A HazMat team was still working on scene as of Thursday at midnight. Glen Rock PD units also responded to the location, which was at 459 Prospect Street.

UPDATE: Shortly after 12 midnight, it was determined that the although the substance found was not hazardous, it was not the substance identified on the package’s label.
