After “suspicious objects” were found in the mail, Phoenix police responded.
Phoenix Police Department spokesperson confirmed that officers responded to a “found property” call at an office near 40th Street & Camelback Road.
Phoenix police Sgt. Phil Krynsky sent an email. “Additional resources responded to collect the items, and secure the area. The investigation is ongoing and there have been no injuries reported.
According to reports, a white powdery substance was found in packages that were sent to Lake’s Office.
Krynsky was asked if this is what was found. He replied, “The items are suspicious in nature and remain under investigation.” Our patrol units were present until around 5 a.m.
Initial reports stated that the FBI agents and Phoenix police officers arrived on the scene wearing hazmat suits.
This is just days before Lake, who was a former news anchor and has been a staunch critic to the press, faces off against Katie Hobbs, Democratic opponent in the Arizona governor’s race. Police responded last week to a break-in at Hobbs campaign headquarters in Phoenix. Hobbs blamed Lake’s rhetoric at first.
Later, it was revealed that Daniel Mota Dos, a 36-year-old illegal immigrant was arrested in connection to the burglary case.
