Police: Bank manager's life threatened in letter with white powder

Posted: Updated:

Spartanburg police said a letter that contained a white powder prompting the evacuation of a TD Bank branch on Tuesday also contained a threat to a manager.

About 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, as an employee at the TD Bank on East Main Street was opening a letter, she said some white powder fell out and there was a letter written in red marker inside, according to the police report.

Workers were evacuated and East Main Street was closed between Oakland Avenue and Alabama Street because of the incident.

Crews tested the powder and determined it was boric acid, police said.

But the letter inside had several derogatory words threatening an unnamed bank manager, saying they would have a "bullet in their head," according to the police report.

Investigators said the boric acid found in the envelope is being tested and analyzed in Columbia by investigators with the Department of Health and Environmental Control.

Police said no one was hurt in the incident.

Anyone with information about the letter is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
