Officials: no threat to Gov. Dayton in white powder found in letter at residence

A letter sent to Gov. Mark Dayton’s residence contained a trace of white powder, officials said.

The powder was with a “non-threatening” letter, and State Patrol officers called fire department personnel, including haz-mat experts, who came to the scene to examine it.

The governor was not in the area at the time the letter was opened this morning. 

No injuries have been reported and there’s no official word yet on what the powder is.
