HILLSBORO (1080 KRLD) - A mysterious envelope delivered to the Hill County Sheriff's office created fear.

The records manager opened an envelope that was addressed to the records manager. She opened it and white powder fell out. She called a supervisor and they sent her to a nurse's office.

Detectives quarantined the area. Hill County Sheriff Rodney Watson says, "They monitored her health. They checked her blood pressure. She showed no symptoms at all so she's good."

Hazmat crews tested the powder and said it was a crushed up pain pill and talcolm powder. Sheriff Watson says they believe someone else put the powder in there, not the sender. 

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice and Hill County Detectives are investigating.
