The following is a press release submitted by the SRSD. Given the unrest in the city regarding the new gun proposals, the Chronicle wonders if this incident is a result of that. Stay tuned to Santa Ramona Chronicle for more information.
Today the Santa Ramona Sheriff's Department intercepted a suspicious piece of mail with a white powder. In an abundance of caution, and working with Santa Ramona Fire Department, Santa Ramona General Hospital, the CDC and the Offices of the Governor and Mayor, we have put City Hall on lock down. A full investigation is underway and the substance is being tested to determine its composition.
SRSD believes this is an isolated incident, however we ask the community to exercise caution when opening mail. Report any suspicious packages or mail to the SRSD immediately.
