(Reuters) -

A man was taken into custody in Logan, Utah, on Wednesday, as part of an investigation into envelopes filled with ricin, a poison, mailed to Pentagon officials and President Donald Trump, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

The man’s identity was not released, local police told the newspaper. A Federal Bureau of Investigation official in Salt Lake City referred Reuters to a statement sent to local media saying the FBI was investigating “potentially hazardous chemicals” in Logan, which is about 66 miles north of Salt Lake City.
