Posted: Updated:

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- Hazmat crews and federal anti-terrorist officials set up camp at Isabela Court in the Myers Mill subdivision Monday night.

According to an incident report from the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, a young girl got a letter from her brother who is currently serving time at King County Jail in Seattle, Wash.

The letter had the words "Anthrax" on it and the envelope had a white powder inside.

Old Fort firefighters, state Department of Health and Environmental Control hazmat crews, State Law Enforcement Division agents and the FBI Joint Terrorism task force were called to the scene. A mobile lab was set up and the contents were found to be harmless.

The victim's mother said her son, who is in jail for violating a no-contact order, has a drug problem.
