FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (AP) - A police hazmat team is investigating a suspicious piece of mail sent to U.S. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas' Dallas-area district office.
Cornyn spokesman Drew Brandewie says authorities were called Wednesday to his office in Farmers Branch. He declined to provide more information.
Farmers Branch police spokesman Chad Taylor says a hazmat crew is on scene and investigating, but could not say if they had found anything.
Authorities are investigating a series of suspicious letters being sent to offices around the country, including two letters sent to President Barack Obama and a Mississippi senator that have tested positive on a preliminary basis for poison.
