Arizona candidate Kari Lake campaign HQ receives 'suspicious items' in mail, prompting Phoenix police response

Phoenix law enforcement responded to the campaign headquarters for Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake after "suspicious items were located inside the mail."

A spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department confirmed to Fox News Digital that officers "responded to a found property call at an office building near 40th Street and Camelback Road."

"When officers arrived, they learned there were suspicious items located inside the mail," Phoenix police Sgt. Phil Krynsky wrote via email. "Additional resources responded to collect the items and secure the area. There have been no reports of injury and the investigation remains active."

Reports said a white powdery substance had been found in packages sent to Lake’s office.

This comes days before Lake, a former local news anchor turned staunch critic of the press, will face off against Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs in the Arizona race for governor on Tuesday. Last week, police responded to a reported break-in at Hobbs’ campaign headquarters in Phoenix. Hobbs initially blamed Lake’s rhetoric.
