KeyBank in Coventry will be closed until further notice as authorities work to investigate after white powder was found in an envelope left in the bank’s depository.
KeyBank released a statement Monday morning, saying they are acting on the guidance of local authorities to keep the branch at 3534 Main St. in Coventry closed for an extended period.
On Saturday morning, branch employees found white powder in an envelope that was left in the branch night depository.
Police said the four employees who were exposed did not show any signs of being sick but were decontaminated.
On Monday, police said they are not sure what the powder is and they are waiting for results from the state lab.
