HARTFORD, Conn., June 30 (UPI) -- Hartford, Conn., police closed part of a street and evacuated a city hall floor Wednesday after a worker reported finding a suspicious substance.

Jackie Baker, an employee of the city's management and budget office, said someone opened an envelope in the tax office and discovered a powder and a threatening note.

Authorities did not immediately identify the substance.
