GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - The Gregg County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating a letter that was received by a faculty member at Sabine High School.

The letter contained a vague statement that could be construed as a threat, according to Corporal Josh Tubb, with the Gregg County Sheriff's Office.

The letter also contained a powdery substance.

Tubb says the investigation is ongoing and criminal investigators are trying to determine what the substance is and where it came from.

The school resource officer was made aware of the situation and is on campus, according to Tubb.

Superintendent Stacey Bryce reached out to KLTV Tuesday afternoon. Bryce says there is no present danger to any students or faculty members. The substance found in the letter was found to be non-toxic. Investigators are now trying to trace the letter to the person responsible.
