We are following a developing story out of Baton Rouge.

WBRZ-TV reports that three people were sent to a hospital after coming into contact with flyers around 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 21

The flyers were reportedly dropped off in an overnight deposit box at the Investar Bank on Coursey Boulevard.

The employees who became ill after coming into contact with the flyers were sent to a local hospital, but that's about all the information that is out at this time.


The Baton Rouge Fire Department's HAZMAT team did respond to the bank.

It is being reported that five other businesses had the same type of flyers show up on their property too.

Some nearby businesses elected to close for the day out of caution for their staff and customers.

We will continue to follow this developing story.
