WASHINGTON — The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a "small amount" of a "white, powdery substance" discovered in a "work area in the West Wing" on Sunday, a Secret Service official said.
The Secret Service is testing the substance, which they determined was "non-hazardous," and said in a statement they are investigating the matter.
"On Sunday evening, the White House complex went into a precautionary closure as officers from the Secret Service Uniformed Division investigated an unknown item found inside a work area," said Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesman for the Secret Service.
The White House declined to comment.
