Unexplained powder shuts Home Depot

The Home Depot on U.S. 19 was closed for several hours Wednesday morning after the Hernando County Sheriff's Office learned an employee had found white powder in a store restroom, according to a news release from the Hernando County Board of County Commissioners.

According to the release, store managers called county officials at 8:50 a.m. after an employee found the powder scattered in a stall of the men's restroom. Soon after, more powder was found in the women's restroom.

The store reopened at 1 p.m. after the restrooms were decontaminated. Test results on a sample of the powder are expected early next week.
