San Patricio County Courthouse Evacuated for Suspicious Package

SINTON - The San Patricio County courthouse is blocked off as authorities look into a suspicious package delivered to the tax assessor-collector's office this morning.

A female employee opened the package to find a white, powdery substance. County Judge Terry Simpson says the woman is okay. She was checked out by medics at the scene before being led outside for decontamination.

All the employees at the courthouse were sent home for the day. The entire area around the courthouse remains closed.
