PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The white powder that prompted evacuation of the third floor of the KOIN Tower was meth.

Portland police said the drugs and vice division is now investigating. A HazMat team responded after a sealed bag of white powder was sent to Skanska, a construction company.

After the fire department determined the substance was not a threat, the employees were allowed back into the building.

Skanska has been regular target of animal rights protests for their construction of a research lab for the University of Washington.
