Suspicious packages sent to Biden, source says
A source familiar with the ongoing investigation confirms to CBS News that two suspicious packages have been located that were addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden. They are consistent with the packages sent to other leading Democrats.
The packages were found in New Castle and Wilmington, Delaware, the source says. The timing for the New Castle package was unclear, but it seems to have been found sometime between 7 p.m. Wednesday and early Thursday morning.
CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton reports the package was found at a U.S. Postal Service facility. Law enforcement responded to a report of the Wilmington package on Thursday morning, Milton reports.
On Wednesday, police were out in force at Biden’s home in Greenville, Delaware. Investigators said they did a sweep of the home and found no suspicious packages.
New Castle County police searched the property and checked the surrounding area. Biden also owns a home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
It wasn’t immediately known if that home was searched, as well.
