About three dozen workers at the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility were evacuated from the prison’s administration building Wednesday after an employee in the mailroom discovered an envelope containing a powdery substance.
No inmates were taken out of the Wilsonville-based women’s prison, and the facility was placed on lockdown after the discovery, said Stefan Myers, a Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue spokesman. Four employees in the mailroom were exposed to the substance and were decontaminated, he said.
Jennifer Black, a state department of corrections spokeswoman, said the four employees were taken to a hospital as a precaution. Another 30 workers were evacuated from the administrative building, where the mailroom is.
