Sea Pines suspicious package identified (The Beaufort County Berbere Party)

BerbereSpiceA package delivered Monday afternoon to a Sea Pines home turned out to be a cooking spice from Ethiopia, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.

The substance was identified at 2 a.m. Tuesday. The investigation began Monday afternoon when deputies were called to a home on Calibogue Cay at 4:30 p.m. They met with a complainant who said she had received a package containing an unknown, white powdery substance after Sea Pines Security initially responded to the unit.

She told deputies she had been expecting a package from overseas. But when she opened it and saw what was inside, she noticed the return address was unfamiliar and got concerned, according to the BCSO.

BCSO’s Bomb Squad responded to secure and assess the package for any explosive threat. The Hilton Head/Bluffton HAZMAT Team also responded.

The woman and the first-responding security officer were decontaminated by HAMAT personnel for any possible exposure, and were transported to the hospital for evaluation.

The delivering postal carrier, the local US Postal Inspector and the Bow Circle post office from which the package had been processed and delivered were notified. The office was already closed for the day. Deputies quarantined the building and the rest of the people inside until the package had been identified as not harmful, according to the BCSO.

It is not believed that the package was sent with any malicious intent, according to the BCSO.

A local FBI agent with the Joint Terrorism Task Force responded and members of the US National Guard 43rd Civil Support Team were requested out of Fort Jackson to analyze the contents of the package.
