State Inmate Indicted after Capitol Scare

NOVEMBER 9, 2006 - Posted at 4:16 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - An Arkansas inmate imprisoned on state convictions has been indicted on federal counts of sending an envelope filled with white powder to the governor's office, temporarily shutting down part of the state Capitol in October.

Leroy Selsor, 29, was indicted on one count of making a hoax anthrax threat and one count of mailing a threatening communication.

Selsor is accused of sending a threatening letter filled with baby powder to the governor's office.  Part of the Capitol was shut down October 10 as Little Rock Fire Department, police and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force investigated the nature of the substance.

Selsor faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each of the counts.  Selsor is incarcerated at the Brickeys unit of the Arkansas Department of Correction on forgery and theft convictions.
