FBI spokesman Paul Daymond says the powder discovered in an envelope Friday wasn't dangerous, but tests are still being conducted to determine what the substance is.

The incident caused police to close down two streets around the courthouse and and a hazardous materials team set up a decontamination station.

A woman who found the envelope was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Authorities would not say who the envelope containing the powder was mailed to.
