Heroin mailed to local organization

June 15, 2011

Heroin was sent to a Wauwatosa organization collecting money on behalf of New Jersey police Tuesday.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

360 Direct, 12040 W Feerick St., a clearinghouse for nonprofit and charitable organizations, received a shipment for the New Jersey Police Officer Foundation about noon June 7. When opening the envelopes, white powder was found by one of the employees.

The Wauwatosa Police Department contacted police in New Jersey, who said they were familiar with the sender of the envelopes.

The powder - which came in wax bindles stamped in red ink with "White China" or "Cowboy" - tested positive for heroin.
