Strip Club Sends Out Envelopes Filled With Sand to Promote a Beach Event and Causes an Anthrax Scare
Last week, a Scores strip club in Baltimore sent out invitations for an annual beach event to residents and local businesses, and to add some fun to the invites, they tossed a little beach sand in the envelopes before sending them.
The letters were not labeled with the club's name so when residents and businesses received the invitations with sand included, some of them thought it was anthrax and called 911.
Police responded to at least two calls, complete with haz-mat team, and evacuated one building before they realized it was not a threat.
A fire department spokesman said that resolving the issue required a considerable amout of resources which are paid for with tax dollars.
It is perfectly legal to send sand through the mail, so since no crime was committed, no arrests were made.
