LINCOLN (AP) — An envelope containing white powder sent to the Community College of Rhode Island in Lincoln that forced a campus-wide evacuation has been found to be non-hazardous.
The college canceled classes at the Flanagan campus on Friday afternoon after a professor received an envelope containing an unknown substance. Campus officials notified the Lincoln police and fire departments.
The school said later the substance was found to be a sugar-based product. A sample is being sent to the state Department of Health for further testing.
CCRI said all regularly scheduled classes and activities will be held Saturday. Spring break officially starts Monday.
