SUNNYVALE (CBS SF) – An Apple warehouse was evacuated Thursday after employees reported receiving an alarming letter at the business Thursday, a police captain said.

Officers from the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety were dispatched to the warehouse building at 1324 Kifer Road around 11 a.m. after receiving a report of possible hazardous materials found there, Capt. Jeff Plecque said.

Officers arriving on the scene learned that the business had received a “strange letter with some rambling in it, but no threats” and observed an unidentified white, flaky substance on the letter, Plecque said.

He said the building was evacuated as a precaution as officers searched it, sending less than 50 workers outside for a short time.

Safety officers determined that there was no threat to the building and the workers were let back in.
