Though, most often, it turns out to be a box of napkins, or perhaps some confectioners sugar, two Dept. of Defense buildings have been evacuated due to sensor systems reporting biological toxins in powder found in envelopes. One complex, off Route 7 in Bailey’s Crossroads, will be closed tomorrow for investigation, and the other, by the Pentagon, was investigated and cleared.
