Albany -- An anthrax scare in East Albany Saturday was the second scare in just a matter of days.
A suspicious package had Andover lane at a stand still for hours.
Albany Police called the fire department out to 722 Andover Lane at about 4:00 PM because of an envelope with powder that was sent through the mail.
