Troopers Investigating Suspicious Package At State Central Mail Facility

Operations at the State of Wyoming Central Mail Facility were stopped today as Troopers investigated a suspicious package that arrived this morning and was discovered in the sorting process.

Wyoming Highway Patrol Sgt. Stephen Townsend says the package, which was addressed to Governor Matt Mead’s office, was suspicious to workers at the facility who were processing and sorting mail as there was no package scheduled for delivery. A Trooper responded to the scene and requested assistance from the Cheyenne Fire Department Hazmat Team which has specialized equipment which Troopers do not have access to.

The fire department responded to the scene and set up their equipment on 18th Street between Bent Avenue and the railroad spur crossing. The temporary closure of the Central Mail Facility lasted for approximately two hours. The situation has been resolved at the facility and the mail facility has resumed normal operations.

Preliminary external tests indicate that the contents of the package were deemed not to be threatening in nature. The package has been seized by Troopers and delivered to the Wyoming State Crime Lab. The exact contents of the package are unknown at this time.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol will be working with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Wyoming Department of Homeland Security and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation to determine if a crime has been committed.
