Baby Powder triggers emergency response at Barry County Bank

The Hastings City Bank in Middleville
The Hastings City Bank in Middleville

MIDDLEVILLE (WKZO) -- The discovery of a mystery powder in a baggie inside the tube at a bank drive-in window in Middleville triggered an emergency hazardous waste response and the quarantine of four bank employees inside the Hastings City Bank on Arlington for hours Friday evening.

Officials now say that it was Talcum Powder.

They had to wait for the arrival of special testing equipment and specialists from Battle Creek to tell them that it was harmless. But that didn’t happen until early Saturday morning.

An investigation is underway to determine the source of the baggie.
