Craig Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show, has a situation on his hand that’s no laughing matter. Someone apparently sent an envelope to his show containing white powder and indicated it was anthrax. Needless to say it was quickly handed over to the cops!
Luckily, as reported by E! News, the substance was not dangerous but cops believe the letter originated from Europe. Officer Karen Rayner of LAPD media relations told E! News, “The Major Crimes unit is handling the investigation.” She added, “The letter did contain some threats directed at Craig Ferguson. They will be working with the FBI and our counterparts in Europe to investigate the crime.”
Initially two people from the studio were briefly quarantined after they came into contact with the power. This was after authorities were notified about the scare.
In response to receiving the mysterious white powder in the mail, the host tweeted, “Ack!Someone mailed my show white powder & claimed it was anthrax. I’m not a big fan of that sort of thing. #thanksFBI&LAPD&LAFD&CBSsecurity.”
