CARLSTADT, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Two days before the Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., the FBI and Hazmat crews responded to suspicious packages sent to several hotels in the area.
The packages contained white powder which turned out to be corn starch, Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan told 1010 WINS.
Someone at an Econo Lodge in Carlstadt found the substance in an envelope, and similar mailings arrived at the Homestead Inn in East Rutherford and a Renaissance Inn in Rutherford, Carlstadt Police Det. John Cleary said.
