Anthrax scare in East Albany

July 28, 2007

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.

Two fire engines and a HAZMAT crew were called out to field test the substance.

It was then bagged and handed over to the FBI.

The powder tested negative for anthrax and no one was hurt.
