ST. PAUL, Minn. — A hazardous materials team responded after white powder was found in an envelope opened at the Minnesota governor’s residence.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says staff at Gov. Mark Dayton’s residence opened the letter Monday morning at a building next to the living quarters. While the content of the letter was not threatening, staff detected a small amount of white powder.

Staff contacted the Minnesota State Patrol, which contacted the St. Paul Fire Department.

The Star Tribune reports officials say it will take a few days to get test results back on the powder. No arrests have been made.

The public safety department says Dayton was at the main residence at the time but was “not in close proximity to the letter.”
