TULSA, Okla. - A white, powdery substance was found this afternoon in an envelope sent to an inmate at the David L. Moss Correctional Center in downtown Tulsa.
Jail officials were going through Wednesday's mail shipment and opening all letters sent to inmates which is standard practice at the jail.
One of the workers opened an envelope that contained a second envelope.
That second envelope contained a white, powdery substance.
Tulsa County Sheriff's Major Shannon Clark tells KRMG that anyone that was in the room when the envelope was opened is being quarantined until Hazmat crews determine what the powder is.
Clark says people frequently try to smuggle narcotics to inmates in the mail.
Today's substance was checked by jail officials and was determined not to be any kind of narcotic that jail staff can check for.
Clark tells KRMG that, when tests on the substance done at the jail all came back negative, Hazmat was called in.
