White Powder Alerts at Brooklyn Federal Courthouse Getting to Be a Habit

For the second time in eight days, an envelope filled with white powder mailed to the Brooklyn Federal Courthouse in Downtown Brooklyn triggered an anthrax scare, the NY Daily News reported.

NYC sent out alerts warning shortly after 6 p.m. that traffic at Tillary Street and Cadman Plaza East was snarled due to police activity and emergency personnel.

On May 7, the Clerk's Office at the same courthouse was placed under quarantine after an employee opened a letter filled with white powder.

According to the News, both letters were sent by inmates serving time in separate prisons and appear to be unrelated.
