According to NBC4, the resident called police to the 3100 block of Floye Drive near Nichols Canyon in the Hollywood Hills at approximately 6:23 p.m. after opening a certified mail item from Thailand that released a white, powdery substance. Police and fire officials mounted a hazmat response, and two women were taken to a nearby hospital as precaution, Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief Jim Holland told reporters.
However, the investigation found that “there was no hazard. There was no chemical found,” Holland said. “There was no powder to be found.”
The suspect letter was a notice from a shipping company that a package had arrived.
