Suspicious Packages May Have Gone Through Opa-Locka Facility

Investigators are looking into whether some of the packages sent to high profile politicians and celebrities may have come from the U.S. Postal Service facility in Opa-Locka.

A senior law enforcement official told NBC News that investigators are looking into whether some of the packages containing possible explosives came through the facility located off of Red Road.

Miami-Dade Police K9 officers were on scene looking for any evidence at the request of the FBI.

Officials with the agency declined to comment.

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz addressed the threats at a campaign event for Andrew Gillum Thursday.

Her name was labeled on the return address of all 10 suspicious packages.

“There will always be those who use distractions, threats and even violence to accomplish their ends,” said Shultz.

Investigators still don’t know who sent the packages intended for prominent Democratic leaders, like former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Operations continued as normal throughout the day at the facility.

Investigators continued to comb through South Florida’s largest mail processing center well into the night.
