Members of the Santa Ana Fire Department hazardous materials team responded to the scene, but the powder, which is believed to be sugar, has not been tested, said Santa Ana Fire Capt. Chris Caswell. The FBI is also responding.

“There is an indication on the package that follows in line with the rest of the hoaxes. We are taking all the safety precautions and taking all the protocols just in case,” Caswell said.
