N. Texas man charged with sending white powder to schools, offices, government buildings

DALLAS, TX (KLTV) - A Rowlett man, Hong Minh Truong, has been arrested and charged with sending hundreds of white powder letters dating back to 2008.

A complaint filed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas states Truong sent 519 letters in the North Texas area, across the United States and to United States Embassies around the world.

The letters were postmarked "Dallas, Texas" and contained a white-powder substance. The letters were also sent to preschools, elementary schools and Lockheed Martin, according to the complaint. Twenty-eight Boston Public Schools received letters in June 2013.

The Boston Public Schools' Information Technology Department said a Rowlett, TX Time Warner Internet Subscriber visited specific school sites on the Boston Public School web page during that time.

The Boston schools’ letters had similar statements.

Other recipients included NASA, State Governors and other Government Offices and Agencies. The letters were mailed in batches of 10-40 at a time.

FBI agents also scoped out Truong’s trash and collected pieces as evidence.

Part of the letters stated:

"Al Qaeda back! Special thing for you

What the hell where are you, Scooby Doo, Counter Intelligence, CIA, you

do not know how to catch the triple dealer spy in your law enforcement.

What the hell where are you Scooby Doo, Internal Affairs, FBI, you don't

know how to arrest the bad cop in your law enforcement.

You all flaming idiot, ignorant and arrogant, know nothing! How to protect 

this country! U.S.A

We are Al Qaeda, U.B.L FBI, Al Qaeda, SS Nazi FBI, working in your

agency. We claim everything."

According to the complaint, in 2002, Truong was mentioned in a DPD report, saying the FBI, DEA, ATF and police are “after him and beaming radar into his body.” He stated “voices are telling him to do things he does not want to do.”

Agents also noticed that the writer also linked the spree to Truong when they noticed he never used a period on the last letter of acronyms (i.e. F.B.I or P.O).
