A 74-year-old Long Island man has been arrested, accused of mailing a letter containing anti-Semitic remarks and a white powdery substance to an office building, police say.
Authorities say Leslie Feher mailed a letter containing anti-Semitic remarks and some type of white powder to an office building at 622 Stewart Ave. in East Garden City around June 13.
When a woman in the office opened the letter, the powder got on her fingers, and she called police.
The powder was later determined to be non-hazardous.
Investigators identified Feher as a suspect and took him into custody at his Hicksville home Friday. He's expected to be charged for placing a false hazardous substance in a letter when he's arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead on Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Attorney information for Feher wasn't immediately available.
