Suspicious Package Delivered to Rep. Maxine Waters’ Los Angeles District Office
By Niele Anderson
Published July 25, 2018

According to LAPD spokesperson Mike Lopez a suspicious package was delivered  to Congress member Maxine Waters’ district office located at 10124 S. Broadway. The office was evacuated after the item was found about 2:35 pm. The package was labeled “anthrax,” according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The L.A. Police Department and a hazardous materials (HazMat) crew removed the package, which was determined to not be dangerous, according to a notice from the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“There was no evidence of any dangerous substance at all,” Lopez said. “They’re probably going to investigate to see where this item came from.”

Waters is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and has called for his impeachment. Last week,  the militant group known as the Oath Keepers planned to protest outside Waters’ office in South Los Angeles, accusing her of inciting violence against members of the Trump Administration who are seen out in public. The protest fell flat when dozens of counter-protesters showed up.
