County Dealing with Mail Threat

Tuolumne County health and law enforcement officials urge residents to look carefully at the mail, and call
for help if anything suspicious shows up in the mailbox.

Be suspicious of envelopes with oily stains, discoloration or strange odors. Excessive tape or
string, or a return address that doesn´t match the postmark are also suspicious signs.

You should set the suspicious piece of mail aside, and call 9-1-1 if
you have doubts.

Six suspicious packages were checked out this weekend. All tested negative. A sample from a Modesto home Friday also tested
negative for Anthrax.
