Days before the Super Bowl, the FBI and local police are investigating a suspicious white powder sent to at least five hotels in New Jersey in the vicinity of Met Life Stadium.

Hazardous materials teams are investigating the substances.

According to the Associated Press, Carlstadt Police Det. John Cleary said an individual at an Econo Lodge discovered the envelope on Friday.

Per the report, similar mailings were found at the Homestead Inn in East Rutherford and at a Renaissance Inn in Rutherford and another envelope was pulled from a mail truck. That was prior to the mailings reaching the Holiday Inn Express and a Hampton Inn.
