MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News)The investigation is continuing today after the Saginaw office of U.S. Senator Carl Levin was evacuated Wednesday after a staff member reportedly found what was considered to be a suspicious letter.

Law enforcement officials are performing tests on the suspicious letter that was delivered to the Saginaw office, and the staff worker who discovered the letter was sent to a local hospital as a precaution. Two paramedics were also taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Levin was in Washington D.C. yesterday. It’s not yet known whether the suspicious letter is related to letters addressed to President Barack Obama and U.S. Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi that contained a “suspicious substance” that tested positive for the poison ricin.

A suspect has been arrested in that case.
