BELOIT (AP) - A Beloit police captain says police are looking for a patient who they think delivered a suspicious envelope to a health clinic.
Officials say a man hand-delivered an envelope containing powder to the Beloit Area Community Health Center Wednesday morning. Three people who handled it experienced burning and discomfort in their eyes and noses.
Beloit police Capt. Vince Sciame said Wednesday afternoon that investigators believe the man was a patient and they are trying to track him down.
He says 15 people were taken to local hospitals, mostly for precautionary reasons. He says the three original people were the only ones with symptoms. All have since been released from the hospitals.
Fifty-six people had been under quarantine but were released home Wednesday afternoon.
