Some drama at Burbank Police headquarters in Downtown Burbank today. An employee opened an envelope addressed to the department at around 2:30 p.m. this afternoon and “noticed a white powder inside,” according to a news release. The administrative offices of the BPD building were cordoned off and the Burbank Fire Department reportedly responded with a hazmat team. A Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department hazmat team rolled to the scene as well.

The release states the white “… powder was deemed safe and not hazardous at about 5 p.m. this evening.” Meanwhile, a “multi-agency investigation,” involving the BPD, the FBI, and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, is underway into the incident.

    Thanks Mrs. Fronnie for sharing some of these Police Press Releases.

    Unfortunately, they haven’t been so forthcoming on other matters.

    We still haven’t seen the “video” that a rookie Burbank Police Officer claimed placed a local Merchant in Romancing the Bean to take an unauthorized “dump”.

    To date, no such “video” has been made public.

    It has now become apparent that the Officer was not telling the truth.

    Members of the Police staff and City Attorney’s office have continued to attempt to fool the Public, even though they “knew” and “know” that the video does NOT exist.

    The letters issued are not truthful and should be rescinded.

    Dixie,

    I have heard loud rumblings about that tape being nonexistent. I’ll have more to say about this soon.
